Cap off winter with wood-fired dining experience this month, at The Star's signature restaurants, Balla and Black Bar and Grill

Playing with wood grills and smoky aromas Black Bar and Grill's executive chef Dany Karam and Balla's head chef Gabriele Taddeucci have each created menus that focus on produce where you can taste the cooking method with every bite. Think house smoked salmon (Balla), wood-grilled T-Bone with smoked potato puree (Black) and even a smoked caramel brulee (Balla).  

At Balla, a four-course menu is just $89, with matched wines for an additional $40. At Black Bar and Grill, they want you to sit by the fire with friends – most of the smoked dishes are made to share, so rally your crew and try them all.
