Now Open: Union Chicken at Union Station


TORONTO — Union Chicken unveiled its flagship diner inside Toronto’s Union Station late last month. .

Located in a high-traffic corridor of the station, across from its sister restaurant, Amano Pasta, the Union Station restaurant is the brand’s second location. The 89-seat restaurant is open seven days a week for lunch, dinner, drinks and weekend brunch, as well as take-out.

The space was designed by Toronto-based DesignAgency and features individual or communal tables, reclaimed factory lighting, maple table tops and an intricately designed wood-panel ceiling.

The menu, which focuses on sharable dishes staring organic free-range chicken, includes rotisserie chicken (quarter $8/$11, half $17, whole $29), Uncle Ray’s Lightning Chicken ($12 to $16), Crispy Brussels Sprouts ($9), Spit Fired Sweet Potato ($7), Fried Chicken & Waffles ($16), and Sugar ‘Crack’ Pie ($6).

Chef Michael Angeloni describes the menu as clean food with bold flavours and focuses on sourcing only the freshest ingredients. “We don’t even have a freezer, except for the ice creams,” he adds.

Union Chicken is the brainchild of Toronto-based business partners Adam Teolis, chef Angeloni and Yannick Bigourdan. The brand’s first location opened in February 2017 at Toronto’s Sherway Gardens.
