Like being a cowboy, eating gourmet fare is better when one has a fancy cloth tied around one’s neck. Bandana-dab the lips with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of gourmet bistro fare and drinks at The Stuffed Peasant in Collingwood. The Stuffed Peasant is open for dinner only.
Within a country bistro dining room, The Stuffed Peasant acquaints palates with refined European-inspired cuisine. Coo at baby spinach on a play date with spiced walnuts and poached pears in a lemon-honey vinaigrette ($7), or cheer on a piquant parade of black olives and anchovies marching across the pisaladiere caramelized-onion tart ($8). Oven-roasted rack of lamb and gratin dauphinoise fight over who gets to ride the tongue-coaster first in a car packed with french-green-bean and pomegranate-jus passengers ($36).
The Stuffed Peasant's wood-lined, high-backed booths ensconce diners in rustic privacy. Culinary comfort is further enhanced by a pastoral mural depicting European cottages surrounded by amber-tinted skies, autumnal flora, and grass-chomping cows jealously eyeing the evening spread.
