A fresh and sustainable restaurant is opening soon in downtown Toronto

King West, prepare to welcome The Green Wood.

Born in Leslieville and ready to take on the west end, the laid-back local eatery focuses on sustainably-sourced wholesome food and bold flavours.

Gearing up to open at 461 King Street West in November, The Green Wood will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktails, seven days a week. And while you can’t grab-and-go cocktails, a wide variety of menu items will be available to-go, or to enjoy in-house.

Head chef Elisa Corrigan believes food should be ethical, feed the soul, and build community. And while she isn’t fussy about presentation, every meal’s bright colours make for a piece of art on the plate.

The locally-sourced menu is filled with hearty and healthful salads, rustic bowls, filling sandwiches, and comforting entrées.

You can expect the menu to reflect what’s in season while prioritizing environmental sustainability.

Chef Corriggan grew up in a small, Southern Ontario town, and the restaurant aims to bring that sort of vibe to King West. Supporting Ontario farmers and businesses by buying local, sustainable ingredients is a key piece of that puzzle.

Anticipate dishes to be infused with pride, as items are made from scratch in-house. And regardless of your dietary needs, whether you eat gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore, there’s something on the menu for you.

The homestyle, small-town vibe of the menu will be balanced out by the modern, contemporary, and minimal appearance created by I-V design firm owner Emil Teleki.

Expect to be able to enjoy meals in the new spot by the end of November. But if you can’t wait until then, you can always swing by the original Leslieville location at 1402 Queen Street East in the meantime.
