In December of 2002, Keir MacRae, Michael Schwarz and Ian Malcolm opened Fire on the East Side in an emerging downtown neighbourhood, just a skip south of Bloor-Yorkville and a nudge west of Toronto’s vibrant Church-Wellesley Village. Offering southern inspired cooking with a global flair, caring hospitality and comfortable surroundings, Fire on the East Side was a quick hit and continues to be an exceptional value.
From an incredible well-priced wine list, a focus on seasonal ingredients and house-made dishes to recruiting and retaining the absolute best staff, Fire on the East Side has lead an evolution toward higher expectations for dining out in Toronto.
A critical success, Fire on the East Side is a 2007 Patron’s Pick recipient and has been awarded a Most Memorable Meal designation by the editors of Where Magazine Toronto.
