Quietly tucked away in a small, uptown Niagara-on-the-Lake strip mall, is one of Canada’s leading restaurants. Upon finding backhouse ,the glow of the wood-fired grill and aroma of the brick oven lets guests know that they are not just out for dinner, but rather embarking on a culinary journey of somewhereness. backhouse offers continuously evolving tasting menus with a commitment to integrated cool climate cuisine and enlightened hospitality.

A renaissance restaurant, the staff tend to the backhouse garden, and deliver vegetables daily, still warm from the sun—where they are cooked fresh every day or preserved for the long winter months. backhouse sources ethically-raised meat, do all of their butchery in-house, and cook over an open fire. Their sourdough breads are hand crafted and baked fresh in a wood-fired oven every day.

TRyan Crawford, Chef at backhouse
Some people are born to do what they do, that is true of Chef Ryan Crawford. Ryan has been involved in the kitchen his entire life. He studied at the noted Stratford Chef School and then became an instructor there for four years. He has travelled extensively, staging at The French Laundry and Terra Grill in Napa Valley; l’Orangerie, Lucques and Patina in Los Angeles, and Jardinière in San Francisco. Closer to home, he has worked with Michael Stadtländer and Jamie Kennedy.
