With a nod to its place in Toronto’s food history, the completely reestablished Peter Pan Bistro brings a contemporary update to the classic traditions of dining out. Peter Pan demonstrates that accomplished cooking does not require a fine dining atmosphere and aims to balance these elements by refining the neighbourhood bistro.
Peter Pan subscribes to the "nose-to-tail" philosophy, popularly readopted over the past few years. This approach extends beyond simply the consumption of meat, instead embracing the responsible use of all raw ingredients. More than an education through food, what some take as byproducts of cooking, nose-to-tail sees as ingredients in the search for pleasure.
Firm in its foundations of British and French principles, Peter Pan forgoes the unnecessary in its approach. Simple intervention should trump the elaborate wherever possible and Peter Pan looks to do this by honoring and reimagining classic dishes by means of modern playful twists. The homage to classic European cuisine, as well as its newer and cheekier elements, restores Peter Pan back into the evolving Canadian contemporary food scene.
