About Two Six Ate

Welcome to


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.

Looking to book a party? Our upstairs dining room is available for large or private groups. Seated dinner, cocktail party, or late night celebration-
we’ve got you covered!
Call or e mail for details.
