Susur and sons headed to Dundas West
Dundas West continues its growth as one of Toronto's go-to dining destination with news that a rather well known chef has decided to set up shop on the strip. Already home to the Black Hoof, Enoteca Sociale, Porchetta & Co., Campagnolo, and the now Jamie Kennedy-managed boutique grocery store, Provenance Regional Cuisine, Susur Lee just had to get in on the fun too. Well, Susur and the rest of his family. NOW Magazine's Stephen Davey reports that the celebrity chef has acquired the former Le Corner space at 777 Dundas West (near Markham) and along with his sons, will open a yet-to-be named restaurant in the new year.
The owners are still short on details, but according to Kai Bent-Lee, it will be aimed at a bit different clientele than what one sees at Susur's King West holdings. "My brother and I will be running the front of the house and my dad's in charge of the kitchen," he explained. "Lee is my parents' vision. The new restaurant is mine and my brother's. And it'll be aimed at a much younger crowd." As far as an opening date goes, early 2012 is the goal. So mark it down DishCrawl — Dundas West should be one of your next stops.
