Meet the owner

The Local Gest’s four owners (Gary, Eric, Sean and Tiffany, or GEST) aren’t your typical Toronto restaurateurs. The four locavore business partners own an acre of land in Sutton, Ontario, where they grow vegetables for their Cabbagetown restaurant.

Established in 2013 in the former Ben Wicks space on Parliament Street, The Local Gest takes pride in supporting homegrown craft breweries and Ontario farmers — it’s all “local, local, local,” says owner Tiffany Smith.

The chef, Javier, says this farm-to-table approach is his dream. “This is what I love,” he says. “As a chef, to be able to grow your own food, cook it and present it on the table…I love converting food into smiles.”

Even though I live in the GTA when we drove into the area surrounding the restaurant, I was unsure about the area and hesitated to go down the steps and into the restaurant. However, I was determined not to give up because the reviews on Trip Advisor were very good. I am so glad I did. The owners are delightful and make you feel like you are at their home for dinner and drinks. The service was wonderful and the food was great. Don't let the area make you miss this gem in Cabbagetown.

We arrived late and they had just gotten slammed. Despite being warned that it would be a while for our food it came out in a reasonable amount of time. The staff was pleasant and even gave us a history lesson on that part of the city.
