About Founder

The top 5 new snack bars in Toronto – "The skewers are my favourite at this new Dundas West place, especially a catfish that imitates unagi, but they also wow with green curry fried chicken."


The Founder Bar menu is a reflection of Toronto itself, multicultural and diverse – "Not only are the cocktail and wine lists out of this world, but the food is just as important as having a good conversation and making a new friend."
