With Gilead Wine Bar, Jamie Kennedy Makes a Return to Dinner Service

Jamie Kennedy Gilead Wine Bar Toronto

It was an unhappy day for foodies and oenophiles when, in 2009, top chef Jamie Kennedy sold his eponymous Church Street wine bar. Though a number of very fine wine-and-dine boîtes have since poured into the Toronto market, Kennedy’s recent return to the format—through pinot- and chardonnay-centric dinner service at his existing daytime café, Gilead—remains cause for much celebration. Shelves lined with colourful jars of preserves exemplify the chef-owner’s long-held locavore principles, as, of course, do his super-seasonal small plates, all of which are designed to pair perfectly with wines from the Niagara region and Prince Edward County.  —Craig Moy
