Fare Game is opening in the Jam Café’s former Cabbagetown digs

Bistro Jam Café closed ten days ago and already a new restaurant is opening in its place. Later this week Gord MacLeod, a former sous chef at La Vecchia and Coquine, and partner Fakhurddin Shaikh are set to open Fare Game, a neighbourhood restaurant focused on game like venison, ostrich and rabbit. The pair is taking a bit of a risk with the location: the Carlton Street room has changed from the Cosmo Café to the Jam Café to Fare Game in just a few short years.
