    There is a whole store dedicated to that on Roncesvalles (West end) called Stasis local food. It's not really a restaurant but they have ready made meals, produce and sandwiches. I was surprised at how much was availalble locally.

      Culinarium on Mt Pleasant is another shop dedicated to local food.

      Some other restaurants that use a lot of Ontario-sourced ingredients: Cowbell, Frank, Harbord Room, Keriwa, Woodlot, Union, Ruby Watchco, Enoteca Sociale + Campagnolo.

      The Landmark Group restaurants, Spenser's in Burlington, the Ancaster Old Mill, the Cambridge Mill and the Bread Bar are all heavily local although they don't necessarily promote it.

      Aravind on Danforth, the cusine is Keralan Indian but the ingredients are mostly locally sourced.

        I'll start the list, I am sure there are many more that I am not familiar with or have forgotten
        Globe Bistro, and I assume their other locations
        Cafe Belong at Brickworks
        Gilead Cafe, and other Jamie Kennedy restaurants
