The Corner House is now Flor de Sal, a new restaurant with Monk Kitchen chef Roberto Fracchioni
For over a decade, Corner House served as a go-to spot for romantic dinners and special-occasion meals. Now, almost a year after the restaurant’s closure, the quaint cottage at the foot of Casa Loma is home to a new fine-dining destination. Flor de Sal has the same candlelit ambiance as its predecessor, and a similar menu of luxe pastas and meat-and-potato mains—which seems like a shrewd strategy for wooing people back to the remote stretch of Davenport Road. The choice of chef was another smart move: during his four-year stint at Monk Kitchen on Adelaide, Roberto Fracchioni cooked one of the city’s best under-the-radar tasting menus. It seems his food may be slightly less experimental at Flor de Sal, which makes the following vow on its website: “You will not find the tricks of molecular gastronomy here.”

So what has happened to Monk Kitchen? That was a great little hidden gem. I’m sad to see it go if it is gone, but in a way I’d be hard pressed to think someone could just jump right in and captain the ship right away.
