  • Neighbourhood gem
  • Vegetarian-friendly
  • Good for groups
Parallel brings together the experience and background of the three Ozery brothers, Alon, Guy, and Aharon, to create this unique space and product.
“We grew up in a home where sesame butter (tahini) was consumed regularly alongside flavourful Mediterranean cuisine. Parallel was born from our history and love for sesame butter. It’s part of our culture and upbringing, and we want to share that with you.
There are few ingredients that are as versatile, nutritious, and just as damn tasty as sesame butter. That’s why we decided to make it in all its forms: try it in our dressings, salads, dips, bowls, and our famous homemade halva, and seed what is possible.
The three of us share a passion for simple meals with fresh ingredients, bold flavors, and innovative techniques. That, along with our love for good coffee, art, music, and community, is what shapes the Parallel experience.”

    Delicious food and fantastic service! Would recommend coming in a group and sharing a variety of dishes, the falafel is a must! Located in an cute area in Toronto, get a drink at the local brewery down the street while you wait for your table.

    Excellent food, great service. Sun in the eyes on the patio was a bit uncomfortable (we were there around 7:30-9 on a July night). Overall, excellent experience.

    The food was delish. Kitchen was very accommodating to our special requests. Server was not as attentive as he should have been but support staff helped a lot.

    This is a restaurant that everyone should experience at least once- incredible food. Be careful not to over-order because everything looks and sounds amazing, but it's hearty and filling.
