Jamie Kennedy signs on at Parkdale brewpub
Duggan’s Parkdale Brewery isn’t messing around when it comes to food. Canadian Beer News reports that the Bellwoods-style business, coming this fall to 1346 Queen West, has joined forces with Toronto’s original celebrity chef. As executive chef, Kennedy will “oversee menu development and staffing of the kitchen,” which sounds like a somewhat hands-off role—understandable for someone who already has three major food businesses on the go (Kennedy’s current projects include fine-dining restaurant Windows in Niagara and Gilead wine bar in Corktown). According to a spokesperson for Duggan’s, Kennedy’s brewpub menu likely won’t make its debut until the brewery’s grand opening in October.
