Quality, freshness and flavor are of the utmost importance to the Downtown Bistro. This is in part due to the meticulous standards set out and followed by the Head Chef and Sous Chef Kate McCormick of Burlington, ON.
Kate is originally from the wine region of the Niagara and is a graduate of the Niagara College Culinary Management program. Kate started her career in the Tourism & Hospitality sector of Niagara Falls and worked her way through the ranks at various restaurants within the area. In 2007 Kate found herself working in fine dining at a ski and golf resort, and later at a fine dining restaurant in Grey County. From there, Kate found opportunities back in the Niagara region until circumstances aligned to accept an opportunity in Regina, Saskatchewan. Kate fulfilled her commitments in Western Canada and returned to Ontario in 2012 where she worked at a variety of restaurants within the Halton & Niagara Regions.
Kate joined the team at the Downtown Bistro in mid-2016 and has put her experiences to good use. Kate has been an important part of the Downtown Bistro and her culinary experiences bring a huge diversity to the menu options available. Working at the Downtown Bistro has been the highlight of Kate’s career with hopes of continued delivery of great food and creative influence to the patrons of Burlington and surrounding areas.
