Using food as the ultimate palate for his boundless creativity and energy, McEwan has led the restaurant scene in Toronto for many years. He joins the ranks of the truly innovative with groundbreaking Toronto standards from “North 44” to “Bymark” to the always interesting “ONE”, a staple for the “see and be seen” crowd in Yorkville. With “Fabbrica”, he has taken another turn and captivated customers with rustic Italian fare in a warm, yet contemporary setting at The Shops at Don Mills.

In early 2009 he turned his attention to upscale grocery and opened McEwan, a 20,000 sq.ft gourmet food store at The Shops at Don Mills and his best selling cookbooks “Great Food at Home” and “Fabbrica” added author to his resume and he hasn’t stopped there.

Mark is currently the head judge on “Top Chef Canada” and his first show for Food Network Canada, “The Heat” was a riveting behind the scenes look at North 44 Caters as well as the building of his grocery store.

Mark’s cookware line by Fresco is sold nationally across Canada in The Bay and in 2013 Mark also launched McEwan Kosher, a full service Kosher catering division in conjunction with 24 Carats.
This past year also brought the opening of two restaurants at the airport which Mark aided in the menu consultation and the launch of a full “grab and go” division, delivering sandwiches, salads and snacks to 11 kiosks owned by OTG Management at Pearson International Airport.
