A new chef collective hosts a dinner party to up the east end’s cred
Chefs Dan Pantano (Glas), John Sinopoli (Table 17 and Ascari Enoteca), Sean Simons (Goods and Provisions and The Comrade), Afrim Pristine (Cheese Boutique) and Deron Engbergs (The Curzon) created the East End Dinner Club in part to push back against the perception promulgated by Globe and Mail food critic Chris Nuttall-Smith that east-end restaurants are trapped in an early oughties time warp of tacky décor and bad food. At the Dinner Club’s first event last night, the “East Side Till We Die Dinner” hosted at Skin and Bones, the group served a $100 six-course meal with each chef cooking a dish and tweeting #eastsidetillwedie all the while.

Mel won’t go east of the DVP.
Yeah, because the “East End” of Toronto is clearly at Carlaw. You guys really need to get over amalgamation. The uncultured hordes from the inner suburbs are the ones paying the bills.
