Imagination and passion is the driving force behind this new eatery and bar that is located in the heart of food haven Main Street. With a focus on making everything from scratch, Chef/owner Ryan Reed along with Chef/owner Scott Swanson, both long-time friends are passionate on creating dishes with top notch ingredients, working with local farmers and producers. Each plate has elements of colour, flavours and textures, and they designed their own kitchen with ease and flow in mind as well. Owner/partner Taylor Burnham runs the front of house and Owner/partner Matt van Dinther runs the bar, rounding up the 4 partners that are doing what they do best.

My friend Jason Tan joined me to share some dishes as we explored the seasonaly inspired menu. Started off with the delicious, vegetarian Sunchoke and Wild Mushroom Soup ($10); this was followed by the popular Fried Potato and Cheddar Perogies ($9) with crispy fried onions.

As Jason is vegetarian, his pick was that we try the Pakora ($9) made with Chana flour, it was light and flavourful; the Kabocha Squash Tart ($16) with house made apple butter, charred onion, Papito gratin with in house grown micro greens was outstanding.
