FK Restaurant (formerly known as Frank’s Kitchen) is a charming neighbourhood bistro within downtown Toronto’s St. Clair West. You may have never heard of this place, but rest assured, this is a place you need to know. Rock star (yet incredibly humble) Chef/owner Frank Parhizgar runs the culinary program and wife Shawn Cooper handles all things front of the house.
The menu is French classic with inspiration from modern Canadiana. It’s completely ingredient based, which means it’s changing constantly based on what’s fresh and in season. Living by the philosophy of everything made in-house and from local ingredients, Parhizgar and Cooper are focused on showing off the best of Canadian ingredients and embracing local influences. The wine list here was curated with impeccable taste, featuring over 400 labels of globally renowned and more exclusive wines, perfect for pairing with FK’s ranging dishes.
You’ll fall in love with both of these uber-talented restaurateurs and the personal touches that would be unexpected at a neighbourhood restaurant. – Jennifer Huether, MS
