Hey Queen West, there’s a new kid on the culinary block: The Good Son. The restaurant, owned by Vittorio Colacitti, who competed in Top Chef Canada‘s fourth season, opened last month. With a focus on organic local and seasonal fare, the eatery features dishes that pay homage to Toronto’s cultural mosaic, but have a distinct Italian flavour. The food is complemented by a curated drink menu that offers new twists on old favourites. And, if you’re in a hurry, you can pop by The Pantry section for a take-out pizza – made on the wood fire oven, of course – or the general-store-esque entrance for an Italian-imported bottle of olive oil. Colacitti wants to make you feel at home, or more likely, like you’re at Mama’s house. Think mismatched furnishings, room-like compartmentalization, time-worn books and trinkets, casual gallery walls, hanging displays of vintage plates, even a fireplace vignette. Because words can only do so much, feast your eyes on some snapshots of the food and decor.
