Hugh’s Room New’s

We’ve made changes at Hugh’s Room – some immediately apparent,
others behind the scenes – but all really good!

A few months ago Hugh’s Room founder/owner Richard Carson, acting on the principle of ‘change is good’ introduced Felix who stepped into the newly created position of General Manager. Felix has brought with him many years of experience in the restaurant industry and he jumped right in implementing a number of inspired changes and improvements. His organizational and people skills are apparent and there is a  renewed excitement and enthusiasm from all the long-time staff.

Felix, in turn brought in Executive Head Chef Richard to work alongside our existing kitchen team and he has fit in seamlessly. Chef Richard’s calm and positive energy has been welcomed. He’s been cooking professionally for more than 12 years. His history as a chef has found him in a variety of ethnic reataurants including Greek, German and Mexican. His passion for food was passed on to him by his grandfather, Private Peter Yasyszczuk, who was a cook in the Canadian Military during WWll. Chef respects traditional cooking methods and has a passion for quality ingredients. He looks forward to seeing Hugh’s Room continue to grow and improve. He is also looking forward to a busy fall season. When not wearing his chef’s coat he can usually be found sporting the jersey of his longtime favourite hockey team, the Pittsburgh Penguins!


Rounding out these changes is Sous Chef Rebecca who was raised in and around Belleville, Ontario. She credits her stepfather for her love for food. He taught her that food is a cornerstone in growing relationships, that gardening is an empowering skill, and that cooking for someone is a great way to say “I love you”. Rebecca has a deep respect for farmers and the effort put into raising food, and a resulting appreciation for preserves and charcuterie. She is very excited to join the longstanding Hugh’s Room team, and looks forward to her role in a hospitality venue known for its great music and respect for audience and artists alike.



And with these changes comes a new menu!
