A Collaborative Dinner between Midfield Wine Bar & Godspeed Brewery

We are excited to be collaborating with one of Toronto’s newest and hottest breweries, Godspeed. Situated in the East-side of Toronto, Godspeed opened in 2017 under the skillful hands and brains of Luc “Bim” Lafontaine. Luc used to be the head brewer at another well known Canadian brewery, Dieu du Ciel!, after which he moved to Japan and established a brewery just outside of Tokyo, then moved back to Toronto to open Godspeed. Luc still travels back to Japan to source ingredients for his brews.

Godspeed isn’t just a brewery, it’s also a Japanese Pub run by the lovey Chef Ryusuke Yamanaka. Ryusuke cut his chops at some pretty reputable restaurants such as Nobu in London and Momofuku here in Toronto before eventually joining up with Luc and for the first time, heading up his own kitchen.

Our own Chef here on the West-side, Mark Redman whom you can read about his impressive background on our About Us page, has a knack for putting a Pacific-Asian spin on some of his dishes. We haven’t asked him why, we just roll with it because they’re so damn tasty. Which brings us to this event; it seemed to make perfect sense to put these two Chefs in a kitchen together to see what they would come up with, while pairing the dishes with Luc’s quality brews.

Event Details

  • Chef Mark and Chef Ryusuke have designed a 6 course menu including dessert. Luc has chosen the Godspeed beer pairing for each course.

  • This is going to be a fun evening of good food and cheer so we will not have someone speaking about each dish & pairing at every course, but we will be providing a detailed menu for you at the table, and the servers will guide you through each course.

  • Luc will be hanging out with us midpoint onward and you can chat with him about whatever you’d like.

  • We are doing one seating for the evening with staggered start times. Staggered seatings will take place between 7 & 9PM. No turning tables, you get to sit and relax.

  • Space is limited. We are offering table seating and bar seating.

  • Unfortunately due to the uniqueness of the menu, we will not be able to provide vegetarian or vegan options, nor can we accommodate gluten-free diets. Some allergies may be accommodated…please inquire.

  • Tickets $85pp (exclusive of taxes and tip)
    Reservations will be confirmed upon receipt of payment. No refunds

FOR RESERVATIONS, PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL US AT info@midfieldwine.com INCLUDING A PHONE NUMBER IN YOUR MESSAGE AND WE’LL GET BACK TO YOU ASAP.

We hope you and your friends can join us for this chill and awesome evening where we take the focus off wine and shine a light on these great Chefs and one of our favourite breweries.

乾杯 / Kanpai!
