The Good Son

The Good Son

The Good Son restaurant, from chef Vittorio Colacitti (of Top Chef Canada fame), is now open at Queen and Dovercourt at the address formerly inhabited by the clubby Nyood.

Enter through the pantry, which serves as a hostess station and doubles as a pizza takeaway counter and retail outlet for the Colacitti family’s olive oils. Further inside, you’ll find a cozy and eclectic room that echoes the comforts of home.

Leather wingback chairs and tufted booths furnish the lounge, while the kitchen at the back of the room overlooks an 18-seat harvest table. Faux heirlooms like ornamental dishes and a collection of chiming clocks adorn the walls.

The menu features dishes like the steak tartare ($19), which pay tribute to Colacitti’s mentors and the melting pot of cuisines found in Toronto. Done in the style of Didier, hand chopped beef tenderloin is tossed with cornichons, shallots, capers and herbs before being finished with a soft-boiled quail egg and lightly grilled sourdough.
