champagne, hotdogs, and a killer view: welcome to tavern on the hill
Meet Andre Schad, co-owner of Tavern on the Hill
How did you come up with the concept?
It was Chef Matt Carmichael (Riviera, Datsun, El Camino) who pointed us in the direction of Bubbledogs, in Bloomsbury, London. So we’ve adapted that idea and there will be a full bar, but also plenty of choice for bubbles from Prosecco to Cava and Champagne.
What’s on the menu?
My favourite ingredient is always what’s on the horizon. So right now it’s peas and morels from Ontario, and then it will be corn and then I’ll be excited for game. But if I had to choose just one thing, it would be a kickass fresh organic tomato.
What’s the vibe you’re after?
We are really hoping to create that relaxed European family atmosphere. If you’ve travelled in Europe you’ll know that it’s perfectly possible for adults and children to have a great evening simultaneously. At Tavern on the Hill we want children to love their hot dogs and play happily in this gorgeous space, while their parents can enjoy a glass or two of champagne, wine, or a beer long into the summer nights. We will also be offering live music.
