London Local is a casual, buzzy, locally owned restaurant by Chef Lindsay Porter and Evonne Li. The menu is rooted with English and Irish inspiration, with a fusion of full flavored local indigenous ingredients.

The space is open, yet cozy, with hints of British nostalgia and rustic accents. The food is part traditional, part contemporary. Do not expect classic British fare, as our dishes will have a Canadian twist to it. Once a week, we do our version of Sunday Roast, London Local style. The 3 course menu and choices will rotate often, but will always include a fun take on the classic roast beef.

What's Our Story?


Over a decade ago, Lindsay and Evonne came together over a bond of appreciating good food. After years of collaborating, following Culinary Arts school, Chef Lindsay Porter and Owner Evonne Li decided to open an independent restaurant, combining Lindsay’s English heritage and award-winning creative cooking skills, along with Evonne’s extensive experience with front of house and human resources. The result is a space that is contemporary, rustic, and comfortable, while still focusing on the most important aspect – delicious food.
