Chris Oliveira and Robin Oliveira of Solara Mediterranean restaurant in the Toronto area discuss their new restaurant. They source local, natural, fresh foods, & try to make virtually everything in-house (like their pastas). They were asked recently why they're not stressed in these early days running a new restaurant. It's because they love what they do, and they're having fun.
I visited with them this afternoon and was extremely impressed with the wine list and fine culinary creations of chef Chris Oliveira. I enjoyed calamari in a medley of black olives, capers, cilantro and olive oil followed by sumptuous scallops seared to perfection. The calamari paired perfectly with Viewpointe Chardonnay 2010, the scallops were paired to perfection with Viewpointe Auxerrois 2008.
I heartily recommend you visit them for a meal and glass of wine!
