Rhum Corner Brings Island Spirits to Dundas West

Rhum-Corner Toronto Signage

It’s hard to deny that this year Toronto was walloped by winter. On top of many frigid and windy days overall, there was also January’s debilitating ice storm, as well as the blizzard the dumped inches of snow upon us just days before spring. Fortunately the city is home to vibrant restaurants like Rhum Corner, where diners can ward off winter’s chill with spice-laden comfort fare and belly-warming booze. The Haitian-inspired spot has considerable cachet—it’s owned by the Black Hoof’s Jen Agg and her partner Roland Jean—but eschews pretension with a welcoming vibe and an affordable menu of street-style plates like goat and legumes with polenta, or marinated pork shoulder griot with rice and beans. True to its name, the joint also pours more than 40 varieties of rum.  —Craig Moy
