The Caplansky Experience

caplansky

Zane Caplansky’s face which is featured on the front of the menus at his famous deli in Toronto might look familiar to you.  That’s because Caplansky has been in movies, on television programs like Dragon’s Den, has a weekly radio show and a large Twitter following. caplanskysOur son, whose work as a professional musician takes him to Toronto frequently, recommended Caplansky’s Delicatessen for lunch and he didn’t steer us wrong. caplansky borschtThe borscht had a tomato rather than a beet base.  It was thick with vegetables and smoked meat bits and had a kind of sweetness about it which I loved.

We ate on the patio and I had a great view of this mural of a young boy on a rooftop surveying the city.  Loved the look of joy and wonder on his face. Art, great food, a meal shared with family equaled a perfect lunch!
