Canada's tallest skyscraper now serves vertical microgreens

Microgreens from GoodLeaf Farms are featured in a salad from 360 Restaurant in the country’s tallest free-standing structure.

GoodLeaf’s Ontario Crisp Lettuce and Spicy Mustard Medley will anchor the Local Farms Salad — which also includes Cookstown Beets, Niagara Baco Noir, and blueberry vinaigrette — on the new menu at 360 Restaurant. The revamped menu, which promises an elevated dining experience with an emphasis on local Ontario ingredients, launches on November 3rd.

“We are excited to be included in the new menu at 360 Restaurant in Canada’s most iconic structure,” says Allison Vaux, Foodservice Accounts Manager from GoodLeaf Farms. “Packing a flavor punch and loaded with nutrients, microgreens instantly elevate any dish they are added to. They also help diners feel more comfortable with their food choices, knowing they are supporting local sustainable food."

After each harvest, the growing medium used in the hydroponic operation is recycled and reused for landscaping. "At 360 Restaurant, our goal is to source fresh, local, sustainable ingredients to create delicious dishes year-round for our guests," says Executive Chef John Morris. 

GoodLeaf’s produce is being delivered to 360 Restaurant by 100km Foods, a wholesale local food distributor in Toronto that connects chefs with local farms and producers, ensuring establishments like 360 Restaurant in urban areas have access to delicious and local farm-fresh food.
