Meet the owner

The concept was simple. Nancy Pickard came up with it back in 1989 after working for almost decade at Toronto’s high-end restaurant Splendido. She wanted to open a spot that was equal parts fine dining and pub, and that’s exactly how you’d describe the food and vibe at The Abbot on Eglinton, where Nancy is general manager.

A lot happened between 1989 and June 2012 when the Abbot appeared on the trendy Eglinton West strip in Forest Hill. First, Nancy partnered with Carrie McCloy and her husband Chris Davis, a chef, to launch an earlier incarnation of the “gastropub” called The Auld Spot on the Danforth. When the trio was looking to open another pub together, they needed to find the right neighbourhood feel, and they found it. “As soon as we walked into the space we knew it was ours,” Nancy says.
