Oliver & Bonacini has joined forces with The Hudson’s Bay Company to open Bannock, a new Canadian comfort food restaurant located on street level of The Bay. Bannock promises to deliver simple, humble food with a creative twist. The setting is unlike anything expected; sleek and modern while also very “woodsy” and cozy.
Just prior to the opening, we were privy to a tasting of items offered on the Bannock menu. It is obvious that they have taken good old honest home cooking and added an innovative twist to it. Most impressive is the fact that everything is made from scratch; from the bread to pastries to desserts, and even their chocolates and gelato.
On the lower level of The Bay – which is not included in this vlog – is Foodwares Market, a modern grab-and-go eatery created by Compass Group Canada for foodies who also like to shop. Next door, is O&B Artisan a chocolate making shop, which will call your name after a delicious meal and day of shopping. Foodwares Market is the first of 22 stores scheduled to open across Canada - certainly a fabulous culinary addition to a historical company such as The Bay.
Bannock is located at 401 Bay Street at Queen Street.
