Mediterranean restaurant Il Passaggio to open at The Pointe
Opening its doors on September 7, 2020, Il Passaggio, a homegrown Mediterranean-inspired restaurant, is influenced by the Amalfi Coast.
Ancient handed-down techniques are used by II Passaggio’s culinary craftsmen, with breakfast highlights including Acai Bowls (fresh berries and banana, Acai mix with homemade granola), French Toast (with homemade strawberry jam and vanilla cream), Shakshuka (Canadian veal bacon, and baked eggs with a cherry-tomato sauce vierge – with a roasted pinenut and hazelnut crust served with a Campaillou French loaf).
Plus, Truffle Croissant (Black Summer truffle, parmesan cheese, scrambled egg) and eggs served six different ways. The three Breakfast Combos – Il Passaggio Favourite, Healthy Choice and Classic offer a range of breakfast dishes and are served with unlimited house-brewed tea or coffee.
More menu highlights include the Truffle Tear & Share (flatbread with black truffle & Parmesan), Quinoa Salad (avocado, cherry tomatoes, organic peach, Rocca, hazelnuts, sun dried cranberries & passion fruit dressing), Steak Burger (Canadian Heritage char-grilled Tenderloin, signature hollandaise sauce, caramelized onions – with a choice of brioche or potato bun & homemade French fries), and signature pizza Il Passaggio (Black summer truffle, Bresaola, grilled artichoke, Rocca, tomato sauce with mozzarella & a sprinkle of parmesan).
Plus, Mama’s Lasagna (Canadian heritage beef ragu, tomato sauce, bechamel & parmesan), a heirloom recipe that has been passed down the generations.
