This vegetarian restaurant recently launched a new menu, and among the new dishes to choose from is a whole roasted cauliflower, which would be great for sharing with the table. The cauliflower is decked out in a fig and sherry glaze, tahini, Serrano salsa verde, pecans and sumac.

Fleetwood Lounge, one of five new eateries at the base of the Oliver apartment complex, takes Caesars to the next level. The Meta Caesar’s house-made Clamato juice comes on the side, showcasing the colourful tomato consommé ice cubes, Worcestershire ice cubes and celery ice balls inside the actual cocktail glass. Guests also get to make three important choices when ordering the Meta Caesar: the spirit (vodka, tequila or gin), the spice (habanero, jalapeño or Tabasco ice) and the rim (pickle, olive, celery or truffle salt). The final touch is a garnish of deli meat and a lime wedge.
