Hawthorne Food & Drink

Located steps away from Church & Richmond, Hawthorne Food and Drink serves “farm-to-fork city food” using local and sustainable ingredients. Their menu changes quite often and take inspiration from the farms of Ontario. The restaurant was established for the sole purpose of giving back to the community and acts as a social enterprise providing training and career development for people in need (i.e. new immigrants, at-risk youth, people with disabilities, etc).

Towards the end of last year, my friend and I had the pleasure of visiting Hawthorne Food and Drink for dinner on a Thursday evening. Everything we indulged in that evening was selected & executed by 25 year old executive chef Ricky Casipe. Chef Ricky is committed to giving back to the community and hospitality industry – providing training and career development for both front and back of the house participants in the Hospitality Workers Training Centre (HWTC).
