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.
