Name: Parlor Foods & Co Contact Info: 333 King St. W., 416-596-0004, parlorfoods.com, @parlorfoods
Neighbourhood: King West Co-owners and chefs: Jason D’Anna and Brett Howson

The Food: Parlor’s comfort dishes are punched up with distinctly Canadian additions, like a swipe of pure maple syrup on a simple charcuterie platter, or ribbons of cold-smoked sockeye salmon in an elegant Nicoise with creme fraiche and pickled beans. Adventurous carnivores may appreciate the unconventional proteins on offer, including sweetbreads (disguised as chicken wings) and horse, which is served raw and paired with a roasted bone-marrow luge.

The Drinks: Former Hawthorne and Cowbell chef Mark Cutrara curated Parlor’s Ontario-heavy wine list and craft beer selection. The cocktail list includes patriotic creations like The Beavertail, a mix of rye, smoked maple and citrus.

The Place: D’Anna and Howson describe Parlor’s decor as “hosier-chic.” Between the high-top barnboard tables and the burlap sacks covering the ceiling, it looks like a cross between a King West lounge and a rustic Muskoka cabin.
