Where to Eat
Co-owned by a "Top Chef Canada" winner, Carl Heinrich, Richmond Station is a stopping place, a bustling neighbourhood restaurant in the downtown core. A neighbourhood spot means the owners are around most days, the staff maintain their position for years and there’s too many familiar faces to really just “be in and out”.
At ki, chefs prepare dishes in both the hot kitchen and at the sushi bar. Dishes are meant to be shared, with a sensation of flavours brought steadily to the table throughout the meal. The experience flows and the enjoyment unfolds - a fresh take on the Japanese style of leisurely eating and drinking with friends.
A nod to Nonna’s living room, Taverna Mercatto pays tribute to the classic Italian tavern, one in which stories are told over rustic Italian-inspired fare and brimming pints of beer.
