Culinary Culture

Drake Hotel Properties has established itself as an arts-infused hospitality brand and inventive dining destination. Each unique property is filled with personality and buzzing with energy. We’re honoured to provide one of Canada’s most unique and sought-after hotel, culinary, arts and retail experiences at the Drake Hotel, Drake One Fifty and the Drake Devonshire Inn. Our seasonal menus, stocked with haute comfort classics and regional flavours, are overseen by Corporate Executive Chef Ted Corrado and his talented culinary team, including a dedicated bread making, commissary and pastry arm. From brunch to dinner, foodie programming to pop up dinners featuring international guest chefs, there’s always something new cooking in the Drake kitchens.

More than your after work hangout, your Friday night reservation or neighbourhood brunch spot; across our restaurants you can experience unique foodie events programmed by the Drake team. Check out our event listings to help you get your foodie fun fix + pacify your palate with all the seasons eatings. From the long-standing 86'D Mondays at the Drake Hotel hosted by Ivy Knight to last summer's Twilight Tuesdays and visits from internationally acclaimed guest chefs at the Drake One Fifty kitchen, we regularly go off-menu. Keep up to date with the goings on by subscribing to our newsletter!!


Our talented Drake Chefs don’t just cook; they compete, travel, hit up industry happenings and take us behind the scenes of our Drake kitchens every Food Friday on our Drake Blog. Whether they're developing a new Drake dining menu, participating in a food challenge, creating a confectionery creation for the Drake General Store, or regularly sharing their culinary how-to expertise to local media, our chefs are always on! Check out some of the exciting things they get up to in + out of our kitchens!
