Flame + Smith

Bloomfield, Prince Edward County

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire… and a menu of wood (Tamarack, anyone?) for carefully curating the precise smoke and flavour impart to each dish on the menu. Meat eaters rejoice – did somebody say Tomahawk? Seafood and sides from land and sea to surprise.

Sustainably-minded, community-minded, and a welcoming, embracing experience from the Flame + Smith team every time we visit. Always a fun vibe, bustling with tables all admiring the open-kitchen atmosphere, seasoned staff and a buzzy bar. Prince Edward County wines abound; think, and pair local. In fact, Ontario wines comprise about 20 percent of their approximately 1,000 bottle cellar. Home is where the hearth is.

Additional wines are mostly a selection of European labels, with a strong emphasis towards organically, or biodynamically grown wines made in a low-interventionist, oftentimes natural, manner, and aged in either neutral barrels, stainless steel, concrete, or amphorae. The team at Flame + Smith seek wines that express ‘terroir’ – the place they were grown.

Family, date-night, special occasion, drive destination, all. And that smell… – Susan Willemsen
