r and d kitchen

R+D Kitchen by White Spot is an experimental full-service restaurant, providing guests with the opportunity to sample new food innovations that may one day become part of its core or promotional menus. Located adjacent to its White Spot flagship location, guests are invited to experience this exciting dining concept that brings the outdoors in while indoors remain out.

Hillstone's second location offers an evocative Newport Beach atmosphere and offers plenty of opportunities for people watching (think divorcees flirting aggressively!).


White Spot's Dip Duo offers an innovative twist on their classic dish with homemade tortilla chips and their famous creamy sauce/vinaigrette served alongside salad and fries - perfect for sharing! Other standouts include their Crispy Chicken Sandwich, Asian Chicken Salad, R&D Fried Rice and Green Beans in Black Bean Sauce; service is reliable while their ambience boasts throwback hip hop/r&B music in the background for an enjoyable dining experience.

Chef Eric brings his youthful and rebellious passion to R+D Kitchen, a modern eatery that pays homage to traditional Asian flavours as well as Canadian favorites. Inspired by California indoor/outdoor culture, its dualistic space is both open & abuzz with energy but retains an intimate vibe; featuring a full bar offering an eclectic variety of drinks and snacks; serving lunch, dinner & happy hour as well as breakfast on weekends - and offering convenient kitchen window seating so shoppers can grab quick bites without leaving their tables!


R+D Kitchen's bar offers an incredible variety of locally crafted beverages crafted right here in Toronto - not only is it an exciting place to enjoy White Spot classics but also discover innovative culinary offerings. Be it local microbrew, handcrafted cocktail or non-alcoholic drink; every item behind our bar has been reviewed and approved by our internal tasting panels prior to making its way onto your table.

Hillstone Restaurant Group (Houstons, Hillstone, Gulfstream and Bandera) operates this casual full-service restaurant which features a stylish combination of wood and glass for a modern tavern feel. White Spot features traditional White Spot favorites like wild mushroom meatloaf, filet mignon with mashed potatoes and wilted spinach as well as their famous Honor Burger with loads of slaw on top! Enjoy sandwiches, salads or appetizers such as grilled or crispy chicken wings as well as short but global wine list or draft beers from Hillstone or Gulfstream/Bandera!
