Our Story

Powered by Passion

The Mattson Family brings elegance and local sourcing to Hamilton’s blossoming food scene. Founded by local restauranteur Ronn Mattai whose vision is to bring quality cuisine, drinks and jazz to #HamOnt foodies.

It started with Mattson & Co., an elegant restaurant on Hamilton’s Locke Street that focuses on locally-sourced ingredients and talent – from the menu through to VQA wines to local live musicians every week. Guests enjoy Ronn’s unparalleled vision with the contemporary cuisine.

In late 2016, Ronn opened The Junction on James Street, a beautiful venue dedicated entirely to private events, business meetings and social gatherings. Six months later, The Junction expanded to two venues and offers off-site events and catering options throughout Hamilton and the surrounding areas.

Today, he runs everything from private events to our flagship restaurant, all with a love for Hamilton and the people who call this city home.
