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.”

    Outstanding experience down to every last detail - the ambience, the cocktails, the food and the service. And price was very reasonable compared to similar restaurants in Toronto. Will definitely be back soon.

    The food is so very good. I wouldn't even think twice about coming back. So many of my friends, including myself, are obsessed with Parallel.

    Incredible brunch. Super friendly and lovely staff. Bright open space. Generous portions and we needed a doggie bag! Will definitely be back many times.

    Superlative food. Creatively rendered middle eastern food. Presentation of everything was beautiful. The server was patient and very helpful, especially supporting my friend with dietary restrictions. One of the best meals I've had in recent memory.
