I heard about the new taco and tequila joint through my Hamilton foodie buds! The restaurant is run by chef and owner, Manny Ferreira (former executive chef of Earth to Table Bread Bar) and a hardworking, attentive team. The atmosphere is casual, relaxing and cozy. They’ve got 90’s hip hop bumpin’ pretty loud to set a chill vibe. The space is small and only holds about 25-30 people including the seats at the bar. Don’t be surprised if you have to wait for a table. I’d say the decor is similar to Brux House with wooden fixtures, exposed brick, chalkboard drink menus and a beautifully organized bar. Natural light floods the space through two large windows during the day and dim Edison bulbs set an intimate atmosphere at night. Tables are set with a stack of plates, a tin of eating utensils and napkins, homemade jars of pickled vegetables (enoki mushrooms, cauliflower and peppers) and two sauces in squeeze bottles (also homemade).
Earth to Table is a local restaurant that is conscious of using fresh ingredients from local farmers, great design and creating traditional meals with a new twist. Their philosophy is to “shorten the gap between producers to consumer”, and I think they’ve done a beautiful job. The restaurant is located in Hamilton Downtown, on a beautiful street that is also home to many beautiful shops, cafes and restaurants.Read More »
