Meet the owner

It’s barely 6 pm and Rasa is already slammed. “Our customers are always such an eclectic mix of people,” says co-owner Adam Minster before turning to discuss the night’s cocktail options with a couple of older ladies who recently pulled up to the bar.

“We’re regulars,” explains one of the women. “This is our local, we come here a few times a week and we love it – the menu changes often, so we never get bored,” she says while tucking into the fish board. The board features a trio of fish prepared in different ways. Tonight’s triplet is a caprese albacore tuna with tomato confit and basil sauce, a jerked steelhead trout with apple relish and plantain chips, and the final pescatarian delight: smoked branzino with dill crème fraiche, orange caviar and mustard chips.

Jason and Tess were wonderful hosts. Really made us feel welcome and wanted us to come back. That's just the social part. The chefs were artists with our food. We had the The Experience - priced appropriately. After the fresh well-dressed salad (mixture of crunch, herb and sweet), the crunch with the brussel sprouts, the sea bream and branzino to match the white whines (Riesling and Pecorino), the ungamy and exactly cooked lamb - just amazing. The tuna dish was my favourite for its melange. Although I would have liked chocolate for desert, the cinnamon bun was out of this world. I will come back - regularly. My kudos to your team for brining the fun and flavourful back to Harbord Street.

Get romanced at these tapas and cocktail spots in Toronto

Food Dudes, Toronto's gastronomers extraordinaire, took on yet another project in 2014, renovating a corner space to create the perfect balance of rustic and industrial-modern, with heavy wood panelling, parlour-esque tufted leather bar stools, bare Emerson light bulbs, exposed pipe and a whole lot of wrought iron. Warm and hunky – a little urban cabin at the corner of Harbord and Robert Street (just west of Spadina) – that’s the vibe you’ll get at Rasa. Eclectic food options that blend North American and Mediterranean cuisines include tzatziki-accompanied lamb neck, pork belly and green tomatoes, and Thai basil and coconut shrimp.
