One of the newest restaurants in good ol' Mississauga is STIR Kitchen, owned by Hip Restaurants.
They're located in the heart of the city on the southwest corner of Hurontario and Kingsbridge Garden Circle (a couple of minutes north of Square One),
We had a chance to chat with owner and restaurant industry veteran Faz Rajani,  about this fabulous fine dining establishment and present it to you via our "12 Questions" series. 
Why 12? Well, why not? It's getting a score of 10, with 2 bonus marks.

    Ok, ok, we know it's not three words. But it's a cool story:

  11. Name Origin Story
    They threw their previous concepts together in hopes of finding something that stood out...you could say they put everything in a pot and "stirred" it up. Funny enough, that's exactly what they did and hence STIR came out. 
  12. Type of Crowd/Clientele
    From the young to established professionals to the mature crowd, their audience is diverse in search of  great food, service and atmosphere that gives a downtown feel without the hefty price tag. It's a great choice for date nights, special occasions and days you don't want to cook....so, every day, if you're like the Modern Mississauga team.
