TORONTO CONCENTRATEd: food culture of all the cultures


what we do

Peoples Eatery, first and foremost, is about the culture and people of Toronto.  For many years, people begrudged our young city as not having a food culture of it's own - an idea we reject completely. Toronto's food culture is a culture of all of the cultures, and that is exactly what we celebrate every day at Peoples Eatery.  

Personally, we love to eat all the best food from the furthest corners of city - so what we aim to accomplish at Peoples is a dining experience where one eats a range of dishes from a range of cultures, as if  taking a tour of the city, eating in good restaurants at every stop.  

food

First and foremost, we're here to enrich your lives with thoughtful, delicious food. Lunch is on weekdays from 12-4 and we serve dinner seven days a week from 5pm until 2am. 

drink

We pick every wine, beer, and cocktail with close consideration to value, pride of place, and above all: deliciousness.  Come smash tallcans and blackbirds or have the pairings with our tasting menu; we offer a lotta strokes for a lotta different folks.

hospitality

It's at the core of everything we hold near and dear:  When you visit we want to take care of you, like an old friend from a distant land.

Eat all of the things


Crunch-to-squish ratio (CSR) is at the heart of everything Chef/Partner Dustin Gallagher makes.

You've gotta eat it to believe it.

Crunch-to-squish ratio (CSR) is at the heart of everything Chef/Partner Dustin Gallagher makes.

You've gotta eat it to believe it.

We have three modes of dining: the core of our kitchen produces an a-la-carte dinner menu with a range of plates that are diverse in scale, as well as culture: we have finger-centric snacks such as latkes with smoked trout (pictured above, left); light dinner plates, and larger platters to share.  We encourage guests to share, reach over each other, and to try as wide a range of foods as possible.  

We also offer a tasting menu of 6-8 courses, to show off the full range of flows/flavours our kitchen is capable of under the guidance of Dustin Gallagher.  Duck a L'Orange is pictured above left-centre, and is an example of one of the later-on courses one might find on the tasting menu. 

 

Our lunch menu stays international but also pays homage to the deli roots of Spadina Avenue: smoked meat and club sandwiches but also big healthy salads and korean noodles.  Diverse!  

And in case you were wondering, we cure and smoke our meats and fish - and support a number of small local bakeries and purveyors.  Believe us when we say a lot of love goes into everything we offer.

The Peoples People


The Peoples Eatery people are four friends: Matt See, Dustin Gallagher, David Stewart, and Adrian Ravinsky.  The latter two are the proprietors of 416 Snack Bar, a place well-known for, well, it's snacks and bar.  Matt is a gregarious fellow known for slinging drinks about town since forever, generally killing the game and giving people what they want.  Dusty is also a barrel of laughs, but first and foremost is a chef whose craft is in his bones and cares mostly about crunch-to-squish ratio, a clean and tidy station, and keeping his food and kitchen fun.
