With gourmet renditions of homey dishes on trend, chefs are getting in touch with their inner child. These childhood favourites are all grown up.

Wasabi on Broadway

The city’s best-loved sushi hub, Wasabi, takes snack time to new school heights with tuna nachos. A sleek line of crisp tortilla chips balance fresh tuna and avocado, each topped with a slice of jalapeño.

Marion Street Eatery

Cozy Marion Sreet Eatery does wonders with pub classics. Mac n’ cheese offers nostalgic comfort in the form of silky cheddar sauce, studded with broccoli to ensure you eat your greens.

Smith Restaurant

Chef Barry Saunders puts a refined spin on a fast food staple at Inn at the Forks restaurant Smith. Golden french fries luxuriate under an earthy swirl of truffle oil and a sprinkling of asiago and thyme.

The Park Cafe

While the name may recall brown paper bags, the PB&J Burger from Park Cafe elevates lunch with a complex flavour profile. Sous vide pork belly and salty-sweet bacon jam give the patty its moniker.

deer + almond

Chef/owner Mandel Hitzer caps the playful menu at foodie destination deer + almond with signature filthy dirty pie. Rich chocolate mousse and vanilla panna cotta under cookie crumb “dirt” is delicious at any age. Watch out for (gummy) worms.
