Leslieville has a new nonpareil – Glas (1118 Queen St. E., 647-351-4527) is the 20-set boite opened by chef-owner Dan Pantano a couple of weeks ago. Very much a one-man show, with the open kitchen in the miniature room, it could be the best food in the neighbourhood. Small dishes, refined presentation, local produce, the tiny menu changing constantly, absurdly low mark-up on top Ontario wines, plenty for vegetarians, comfy enough to make one want to stay and work through the entire menu… I’m reviewing it properly for Zoomer in the fall, but this is a heads-up. Pantano cooked in Europe (mostly Italy and London) for eight years, alternating unpaid labour in multi-Michelin-starred kitchens with well-paid practical gigs. I will hitch my barque to his star.

    Thank you so much for coming by GLAS. It was great to meet you, and I look forward to seeing again in the future, and discussing food.

    Just to let you know, we are currently closed for lunch, but will be exploring the possibility for the future.

    Best regards,

    Dan Pantano
