 Cuisine for Discerning Tastes

The dining experience is one that should be an invitation to breathe in the delicious aromas, be soothed by a symphony of flavours, and awoken to the delights of extraordinary cuisine. Common to every culture is a value placed on dining together and our essence is to make that experience anything but common. “Cuisine for discerning tastes” takes the essence of high quality dining and brings it to your lips with elegance. We aspire to bring the best ingredients, menus and flavor together in a way that will make your dining experience exquisite.

Our Logo

Just like the tag line is an expression of our brand, the logo is our signature. The light font in “Kitchens of Distinction,” creates an elegant look that reflects the class of service and food quality we provide. The glass transitioning into the fork represents the stellar dining experience we offer. The elongated fork bears a resemblance to fine silverware reserved for special occasions. The transition of fork to glass symbolizes pairing a fine wine with an award winning meal to enhance the dining experience. The tag line underneath is indicative of the passion on which Kitchens of Distinction was founded. That foundation is: inspired, flavourful, creative, elegant dining for any occasion.
