Zomato x Foodism at The Good Son

by - March 28, 2016

About two weeks ago, a small group of foodies were invited to The Good Son for a #ZomatoMeetup. The meal was a Zomato x FoodismTO collaboration dinner to celebrate the Toronto launch of FoodismTO. Foodism is the largest food and drink magazine in London, UK, and Toronto marks their first international foray. The web version launched earlier this past November, and the free print magazine will be released sometime in the fall (likely September 2016). FoodismTO will follow the same format as its London publication, as it will be a free magazine (funded by ads) featuring high quality images and food-centric articles on Toronto's food scene. Additionally, President’s Choice’s PC Black Label Collection recently signed on to be Foodism's official launch partner, which is pretty exciting news for the publication.

They are celebrating their launch with an amazing contest where one winner will get the chance to dine at 12 top Toronto restaurants for a year - one meal for each month of the year for two. All you have to do is tweet them using the hashtag #TOMealsForAYear with the name of a favourite dish that you've had at a Toronto restaurant. More details at

The Good Son is a neighborhood restaurant and bar in the Queen West area. The restaurant opened its door in 2014, and is headed by Chef Vittorio Colacitti of Top Chef Canada. Rather than focusing on one cuisine, Chef Vittorio Colacitti brought forth a multicultural menu that celebrates the city's
multiculturalism. The restaurant also focuses on using local and seasonal organic ingredients, and their menu changes seasonally.

Our dinner at The Good Son was a 7-course tasting menu prepared by Chef Vittorio Colacitti, and his team.
Some of the menu items were made specifically for the event, and are not on the current menu like the Double Duck Pizza.


[First Course] Sea Bream Crudo - tomatillo, apple, almond, avocado


 [Second Course] Steak Tartare - piquillo, frites


[Third Course] Dumpling Soup - scallop, ginger, miso 

The open kitchen boasts a large wood-fire oven that churns out delicious looking pizzas like the one we had at the event.

[Fourth Course] Double Duck Pizza - duck confit, foie gras, rapini, apples & balsamic

[Fifth Course] Grapefruit Sorbet - fresh grapefruit, chilli pepper, and basil

 [Sixth Course] Wood-Grilled Rib Eye Steak - pesto potato pavee pairing with a glass of Highway 101 Cellars California Zinfandel


[Seventh Course] Desserts - almonds brown butter cake with pear puree, cardamon gelato, apple crumble, chocolate hazelnut truffle, and black forest cake

Address: 1096 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J
