REDS Midtown Tavern

Reds proudly launched our second location at Yonge and Gerrard on October 30th, 2013. Reds Midtown Tavern is the perfect locale for connecting with colleagues and friends, where good conversation meets great food, as well as a social midpoint for Toronto’s East and West neighbourhoods.

Like good conversation, we think delicious food should be shared. Our culinary team led by Executive Chef Matt Robertson has created an impressive menu of reimagined classics with a unique selection of social sharing plates including our freshly shucked oysters and our signature Tavern Butcher Board.
