This Week in Food rounds up the week's food news, restaurants openings and closings, chef movements and upcoming food events in Toronto. Find us here every Friday morning.

OPENINGS & CLOSINGS

  • Newly opened La Burrita has replaced Ethiopian restaurant Abyssinia at 735 Bloor Street West, and is now serving up fast casual Mexican food.
  • New restaurant TenTen (from the team behind The Upper Crust) has quietly opened in Leslieville at 1010 Queen Street East.
  • Also newly opened, The One Restaurant is now offering daily lunch and dinner menus plus weekend brunch at 895 Yonge Street.
  • The Chase is slated to open two restaurant concepts this summer in the Dineen Building at Yonge and Temperance. The maritime-themed first floor will feature fish and oysters while the fifth floor is set to become a high-end Italian chop house.
  • New take-away café, The Pink Grapefruit is set to open in April at 106 Queen Street East. The Pret A Manger-styled concept from chef Tatiana Shabotynsky (George, Auberge du Pommier) will feature coffee bar staples and healthy prepared foods.
  • The Burger Press (167 Bathurst Street) has closed after less than a year in business, proving that the burger wars at Bathurst and Queen are heating up. Signs indicate that something called Downstairs Deli is soon to take over site.
  • A sign announcing the imminent arrival of Broastyy has gone up at 1281 Bloor St. W.
