Hawthorne Food & DrinkMonday, December 12, 2016
The concept of Hawthrone Food & Drink is all about giving back to the community. The restaurant is a social enterprise of Hospitality Workers Training Centre (HWTC), a non-profit organization based on a sectoral workforce development approach. People who are unemployed can access free training and career development at Hawthrone to help them gain a job in Toronto’s hospitality industry. In 2015, HWTC trained 300 participants at Hawthorne and other partner facilities and about 80% of these trainees were successfully placed in hospitality jobs around Toronto within the same year.
The menu includes small shareable plates and main dishes. For drinks, there is a selection of wine, beer, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages. We had quite the varied tasting menu which left us feeling very full but completely satisfied!
