Co-owners Rob D’Amico and Chef Dave Lamers, of renowned Abruzzi in Downtown London, opened this contemporary upscale neighbourhood tavern in 2020. An internationally-inspired menu offers something for everyone, perfect for families, a business lunch, or a great night out with friends.
Taverna 13thirtyone was designed to accommodate the vision of experienced restaurateurs, to create a relaxed yet sophisticated culinary experience. A welcoming bar has both craft beers and quality wines on tap, and a larger selection by the bottle. High ceilings with exposed ductwork and large windows let in plenty of natural light. Comfortable seating is arranged for larger groups and intimate dinners. There is a private room for parties or business meetings and a large seasonal patio.
Chef David Lamers and Chef Eric Robinson lead the kitchen team, with a Feast ON™-certified menu that celebrates local and seasonal ingredients inspired by international flavours. Charcuterie Boards and a selection of small plate options are ideal for a communal dining experience or choose a small plate as a starter or a light bite. You’ll also find fresh oysters, housemade pasta and an eclectic variety of main dishes, and inspired housemade desserts.
An excellent Sunday Brunch is made even better with half-price Brunch Cocktail refills. Speaking of cocktails, enjoy Happy Hour specials from 2–5 pm seven days a week.
