Nomads Restobar – Riverside Business Profile Series

To most people, ‘nomad’ is a word used to describe those who wander. To folks in Toronto’s Riverside neighbourhood, it’s the name of a new restaurant and a way to let their taste buds travel!

Nomads Restobar - Riverside Toronto


With success at his first Nomads in Port Credit, owner Jonathan Harvey and his team decided to expand their concept to Toronto. Then, in the summer of 2019, after a couple years of planning, the family-run business opened its doors in Riverside — an up and coming east side neighbourhood with a “sense of community” that Jonathan noticed immediately.

“It is a suburban area that is quickly growing into what I believe will be one of the most popular areas in Toronto,” he said, describing the people in Riverside as down to earth and the business community as supportive and collaborative.

Nomads ‘Broadview’ location at 701 Queen St E features Red Seal chef ‘Chile’s’ globally inspired, locally sourced menu.  Dynamite dishes include kalbi short ribs, cauliflower pakora, and bison sliders. The bright, open, and airy restaurant also boasts a long list of drinks and some specials.

“Our most popular product would be our Amsterdam blonde beer paired with a shot of Jameson,” said Jonathan. “We have dubbed this a Happy Meal.”

Serving dinner seven days a week and brunch on weekends, Nomads is a great place to kick back and relax after work or on weekends. Visit them in Riverside to connect with your family and friends in a lively atmosphere and to treat your taste buds to mouthwatering dishes.
