About Two Six Ate

Welcome to


***please note we will be closing at 11:00pm on Monday, April 27th***

Our concept is simple: making food inspired by local, fresh, sustainable products. We offer contemporary variations on classic munchies with just about everything prepared in house. We take pride in crafting a regularly changing menu based on the principle of seasonal nose-to-tail cooking.

Located in the heart of Little Italy, we are happy to embrace the neighbourhood and culture by incorporating Italian gastronomy and spirits.

We offer a small plates menu and our full menu is available Wednesday through Monday from 4:00 pm until 2:00 am (closed Tuesday)

Please contact us for reservations, group reservations, take-out orders, or any other inquiries.
