When chef Lynn Crawford opened this restaurant on Toronto's east side in 2010, she brought a different dining style and some celebrity to the Riverside neighbourhood. The star power comes from Crawford herself - known for stints as a Food Network personality and her years running the kitchens at Four Seasons Hotels in Toronto and New York City. As for dining style, rather than offering a traditional a la carte menu, Crawford and her team set a different four-course dinner each night of the week, built around fresh, local ingredients and simple farm-to-table cooking. One night diners might be treated to Ontario lamb, while fresh-caught trout is served the next night. The mostly Ontario wine menu echoes the restaurant's local spirit.
