360 The Restaurant at the CN Tower is revamping its food and drink menu, with a renewed emphasis on Canadian cuisine. Feast On Certified and an Ocean Wise partner, 360’s seasonal menus feature locally-sourced food and drink to pair with that only-in-Canada view.
Executive chef John Morris talks to us about 360’s new food philosophy.
What inspired you to embrace a fully local culinary program at the CN Tower?
We firmly believe in supporting the local community. Food tastes better when you are closer to the source; we’re fortunate to be in a region that provides delicious, seasonal ingredients year-round.
What inspires you about designing a seasonally themed menu at 360 year-round?
The availability of what’s in-season inspires us! What's exciting is finding new ways to present items while keeping ingredients integrity.
What can guests expect when they dine at 360 in 2019?
Anticipate a menu that will deliver an authentic taste of “Canada at its best,” from coast to coast, all in a unique setting. The menus feature handmade, local, all-natural ingredients inspired through food, wine and of course, some of the most amazing views of Toronto.
What do we produce well in Canada?
Ontario and Canada are strong with amazing organic farms, fisheries, producers; we have it all, from organic fruits and vegetables to amazing cheeses and everything in between. Ontario is home to a number of award-winning wineries and breweries.
How does wine and beer fit into your ethos of supporting local?
Our beverage program is a carry-over of our local focus on Ontario and Canadian suppliers – craft beer which includes our very own Tower Lager (from Railway City Brewing in St. Thomas), cider and wine, along with Canadian spirits in all our cocktails.
