Chinese New Year at Susur Lee’s Luckee Restaurant

Susur Lee’s Luckee restaurant in downtown Toronto has created 3 special prix-fixe menus until February 21st, 2016 to celebrate Chinese New Year and the year of the monkey. The special 6 and 8 item menus stick to the asian fusion style that Lee has been known for.

The menu is priced from $88 – $168 with the option to have wine pairings for an extra $45 – $60. Here are the items that we got to try at a preview of the dishes. Not pictured is the Duo of Char Siu Short Rib & Pan Seared Wagyu Beef with wok fried vegetables and the Lobster Yi Mein with ginger & scallion lobster with egg noodles.
