THE BEECH TREE STARTED OUT AS SOMETHING RELATIVELY CONCEPTUAL …
But this starting point has been further developed to include Ontario-centric interpretations of Italian peasant food, the occasional French classic as well as twists on dishes from North Africa, Spain and anywhere that good ingredients might guide us. We started out playing the role of an upscale pub, but those constraints have since been abandoned and now we cook whatever the hell we want. We aim to create un-fussy, tasty food that is accessible and familiar yet created with an eye for precision, flavour and seasonality. What started out with four wines has since grown 16. We have a full bar and an extensive cocktail list. We have four craft beers on tap, and several bottled and canned products.
