HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS THE GOOD SON IS A NEIGHBOURHOOD RESTAURANT AND BAR EMBRACING THE LOCAL QUEEN STREET CULTURE Our menu us a reflection of the melting pot of cultures that has gentrified the Queen West neighbourhood in Toronto. With a focus on local and seasonal organic produce, hormone free and free range proteins, the menu has been designed for guests to share plates, in an effort to create a convivial and social dining experience. The heart of our kitchen bolsters a wood-fired oven & wood-fired grill that has been imported all the way from Mam Forni, Italy. Wood-fire capabilities are critical for our menu as the flavor imparted on the food is exceptional and unique. Our cocktails are as equally thought out as our food. Chef de bar Moses McIntee serves up a no-nonsense cocktail program featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients that are all made in house.
