We love to uncover when we are wrong. We tend to enjoy cuisine from single restaurant, chef hands on, passionate places and try to pass on franchises or chains. REDS being owned by Sircorp, made us believe that we would get standard restaurant fare and nothing to wow us.  Well, we can tell you we were wrong. Check out Ken’s position on REDS.


REDS Wine Tavern is part of big company but boasts small restaurant cuisine. What does that mean? Well, it means that SIRCORP owns REDS which is the company who also owns, Jack Astors, Loose, Moose, Canyon Creek, Alice Fazoolis and FarNiente to name a few. These are big chains tied to a big company and that at times screams middle of the road. Now do not get me wrong. I live in Mississauga and frequent Jack Astors every Sunday with my brother and sister for drinks to make sure we keep in touch. Also, others rave about the experience these restaurants have to offer and I do not doubt it.  I had a prime rib slider from Canyaon Creek thanks to my friend @hi_misskate at the Gourmet Wine and Cheese show and it was killer.

However, I try to share only places that inspire me or serve a special, specific purpose for me.  REDS is one of those places that has that profile of a chain but is much more, and definitely worth the visit.  Great food, every detail is accounted for, drinks are on point and it is dead central in Toronto.  Try it out and share your experiences with me, good or bad.
