It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to close our three restaurants until we get the go-ahead from the Province of Ontario to re-open, when the risks associated with this pandemic are minimized.

This decision was made even more difficult by our concern for our terrific staff, who will be most affected; whether through exposure to the virus if they continued to do their job, or through financial consequences of an extended closure.

In order to be able to share some of our favourite things with our guests until we are able to reopen to the public, we have started a curated wine & food delivery service for our guests. You can find out more details and place your orders here:

We hope we can still be part of your dining experiences at home while our dining rooms are closed to the public.

Restaurants are a place to gather and to connect with one another during difficult times, so it is so especially sad when at a time that this connection is needed the most, it is impossible to make our spaces available to our guests safely. I can’t wait for the day (hopefully very soon!) to be able to announce when have been given the all-clear from the authorities that it is safe to once again to care for our guests in our dining rooms. Stay safe, be well, stay healthy.
