A warm “welcome home” to Bronwyn and Aaron Linley, the owners of the newly opened Bluebird restaurant on Ontario St! Already a hub for the old “down the street” neighbourhood crowd, it can be best described as bistro meets gastropub meets casual menu with elevated attention to detail. Chef Aaron is expertly cooking food in a fun, relaxed environment at affordable prices. Charred French Onion dip, Ham & Cheese croquettes, Watercress Caesar Salad, Parisienne Gnocchi are some of the menu choices along with a number of fish and seafood offerings, Aaron’s favourite to cook!
The Linley’s began a restaurant in downtown Stratford many years ago that they ran for 10 years before selling it. Following that they opened a catering business on York St. And then the big city was calling them. For the last five years, Aaron worked as the Executive Chef of Pure Spirits in the Distillery District while Bronwyn was the General Manager of a busy pastry business.
Looking for a calmer lifestyle, the two have returned “home” to Aaron’s hometown. Hence the lovely moniker, Bluebird… a symbol of returning home and happiness!
