The Good Son

When asked on the weekend what my favourite part about living in Toronto is, I answered without hesitation saying hands down, the food. This city is filled with a wide range of high quality restaurants ranging from the exotic to the eclectic. The other week, I had the pleasure of finally visiting The Good Son on Queen Street West. This restaurant has been on my list of places to try for a while now and it did not disappoint. Under the culinary direction of Vittorio Colacitti, each dish created at The Good Son is expertly created to infuse a range of flavours to perfection. This cozy and intimate restaurant makes you feel like you’ve stepped into someone’s living room to relax for a delicious evening with friends. Filled with beautiful leather banquettes and antique decorations, you first enter through what looks like an old general store where you can order one of their delicious pizzas to take away.

The Good SonTheir seasonal approach to preparing food allows them to infuse unique flavours into every dish that is made with organic produce, hormone free and free-range proteins and cooked on a wood fire oven and grill. This restaurant reflects the diversity of the Queen West neighbourhood in the west-end of Toronto to create dishes that are perfect for sharing and indulging in with friends. And while you’re there, why not enjoy one of their fresh cocktails made in house and designed by Chef de bar Moses McIntee.
