After being slightly revamped last year, the Ace restaurant is still going strong in High Park. After bring practically abandoned for twenty years, the former Chinese eatery has been successfully rebranded as a homely French diner. Save for some much needed restorations, most of the original fixtures have been kept in place. Even the beer is tapped out of an old milkshake maker. Executive chef Peter McKnight serves up features like the beef tenderloin tar tare with rye lavash and amaranth sprouts and a signature fried chicken. Every night after 11:00 p.m. the cozy dining space is changed from a family-friendly restaurant into a fully stocked bar serving oysters and kitchen plates of cheese, olives, and Mennonite sausage—the perfect compliments to a Wellington County Ale.
