As of this summer Toronto’s culinary repertoire now includes Catalan tapas. At The Distillery District's newest restaurant, Madrina, Chef Ramon Simarro, whose experience consists of both Michelin-star restaurants and popular casual eateries, focuses on seasonal products alongside authentic ingredients from Spain to re-imagine a menu that marries innovation and fun with Barcelona classics. Translated from Spanish, Madrina is the whimsical and spirited godmother you always wish you had. Her playful demeanor is mirrored in food and service that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
