Mesage to seller

Carben is located in Hintonburg and thrives from the vibrancy and support of the community. The restauarant is named after the owners Caroline Ngo and Kevin Benes. It is a play on carbon, which is a compound found in all living plants and animals.
The food at Carben is expressive, modern and ever evolving. We are inspired by local and international ingredients and cuisine. We are always challenging ourselves, our staff and our customers. We love collaborating our food with craft cocktails which are created with the same intensity as our food.
The space was designed by Shannon Smithers-Gay from one80 Design. The space is modern and rustic with a touch of industrial – from the quartz bar, to the personalized back wall, and the large modern light fixtures. We want the space to feel inviting and a place that everyone wants to keep coming back.
