A life-long passion for food and wine led owner and wine geek Jill Davis to open Toast in 2013. The idea behind Toast was to open a restaurant serving up food made from the freshest locally sourced ingredients, creative cocktails, and a diverse and edgy wine list, all in Cleveland's most happening neighborhood. In keeping with Toast's emphasis on letting the best ingredients speak for themselves, Jill stocks the bar and bottle shop with low-intervention wines, meaning wines that are grown in organic or biodynamic vineyards, use natural fermentation, and are fiddled with as little as possible. wine cellar with excellent examples of popular grape varietals, albeit usually with a twist, as well as those that might push you out of your comfort zone. She received her Level III Certificate with Distinction from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET). By day, she is an attorney with the Federal Public Defender. Jill lives in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood with her dogs Alice and Rory, and a couple chickens at any given time.
