Since opening in 2008, Gilead Café has grown to be a favourite amongst local lunchers. It’s so popular, in fact, that chef Jamie Kennedy has been persuaded to keep his Corktown establishment open for dinner, too. From Tuesday to Saturday the café becomes a bistro, where patrons can select from a seasonal à la carte menu highlighting ingredients sourced from local producers. Guests can expect sustainable fish, naturally raised meats and exclusively in-season produce from Kennedy’s recently debuted spring menu. Ontario vineyards aren’t forgotten either, with several homegrown varietals featured on the wine list.
