Management Team

Greg Chernoff, General Manager

A native of British Columbia, Greg’s love of hospitality was influenced by watching his mother prepare family meals and ready for and host dinner parties as he was growing up.

Greg began working in the business at various positions in bars and nightclubs in Vancouver. He relocated to Toronto in 1999 eventually working with the Toronto Hotel Intercontinental as an Assistant Manager.

Greg joined Fire on the East Side in 2005 eventually taking on the role as Assistant Manager. He was promoted to the position of General Manager in 2010.

In addition to Greg’s interest in running an exceptional restaurant, he is both an avid and well versed film buff. Late summer, when Toronto hosts the Toronto International Film Festival, is his favourite time of the year.
