Taste the finest Essex County has to offer.
Farm to table at its best in a relaxed pub atmosphere.
Located at 131 Elliott St W (formerly the Nesbitt Inn), Rino’s Kitchen is chef Rino Bortolin and his wife Anastasia Adams’ latest culinary project. The historic 100 year old house is a quaint comfortable setting to enjoy Rino’s freshly prepared menu. The pub offers a full menu focusing on local ingredients and supporting local growers whenever possible. Join us for lunch, dinner, a coffee or a pint. We offer a wide range of catering menus, both on and off site. Contact us with any questions or inquiries.
This beautiful century old house was one of the first houses in the neighbourhood when it was built back in 1915. It was, and remains, a cornerstone and gathering place in the Midtown neighbourhood.
Many of the original features remain with a working fireplace, original woodwork, and original stained glass windows (rumoured to have been designed by famed Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh).
These beautiful features create a quaint and comfortable atmosphere for dinner or simply a couple of drinks. During the summer months we feature a unique outdoor patio nestled in the backyard garden. The charm and vibe of the house helps inspire a sense of comfort and hospitality that we hope greets all our guests.
March Break Kids Cooking/Restaurant Camp
Mon-Thu 10am to 4pm Fri 10am to 230pm
Ages 7 and up
Cost: $220/week – includes lunch and snacks each day
Kids will not only be given cooking instructions but will get a working knowledge of how a restaurant runs. They will be taught some basic cooking techniques, knife skills, safe food handling, and recipes but also be trained to work in a restaurant setting; dishwashing, serving tables etc. The kids will get hands on instruction throughout the week culminating in a working lunch on Friday at 12 noon. The kids will be working the dining room and serving some of the dishes they helped create for the general public. We invite all parents and relatives to come in for that special lunch service. They will get a first hand account of what it means to work in a restaurant, tips and all. Lunch and snacks are included on a daily basis.
The kids will get a hands experience supplemented with discussions about where our food comes from, local food knowledge, and games that will help them expand their cultural understanding of food and its importance.
