Queen West trendsetter the Drake Hotel is bringing in chef Ted Corrado to take over its kitchen. Corrado did stints at Rain, Luce and George before opening C5 Restaurant at the ROM, where he cultivated an ambitious, fussy, high-end style of cooking. At the more comfort-oriented Drake, he’ll be working alongside current head chef Darren Glew, whose work received tepid reviews after Anthony Rose left to open his buzzy new diner Rose and Sons, and overseeing the food program at The Drake Devonshire Inn, which is slated to open in Prince Edward County this summer.
