University of Guelph Graduates Open Innovative Restaurant

Just 4 months ago, Lirom Shimonov, Mirelle Shimonov and Corey Paris opened Who Gives a Schnitz in downtown Guelph. These University of Guelph graduates saw an opportunity in Guelph’s late-night food market and made it their mission to introduce an innovative new restaurant offering the best Schnitzel sandwich in town. I had the pleasure of visiting with them at their downtown location and trying one of their mouth-watering schnitzel sandwiches. If I didn’t give a schnitz before, I definitely give a schnitz now!
