Here are my picks for the top new restaurant openings in Toronto for September 2015.
According to a Facebook post on the Das Gasthaus page, anyone who's already bought a $150 ticket, either online or via snail mail, will receive a refund (though there's likely no reprieve for those who composed a 500-word essay on how to improve the quality of care for Canadian seniors instead of buying their way in).
Toronto Restaurant Openings: The Commodore, Bobbie Sue's, Reforma 35, Mi Taco, Tapagria, Miku Toronto
- The Commodore is now open at 1265 Queen St. West in Parkdale. Chef/owner Jon Vettraino (ex-Splendido, 416 Snackbar) is serving up a seafood focused menu, craft cocktails and Ontario beers.
- Mi Taco at 247 Queen St. West opens this Saturday, October 3. If you walked by this week you might've noticed that they're making flour tortilla me from scratch in the front window.
- Reforma 35 has replaced Agave y Aguacate at 35 Baldwin St. The new casual Mexican cantina is a collaboration between Andres Marquez (ex-Fonda Lola) and Keyvan Foroughi (ex-Agave y Aguacate).
- Bobbie Sue's, the new mac n' cheese joint from the folks behind Poutini's is already open at 162 Ossington Ave. They're even operating extended hours for Nuit Blanche.
Here in Toronto, we have been blessed with the fact that "going out for Chinese" doesn't necessarily translate to "getting fried chicken balls" (though there's nothing wrong with that). We are indeed fortunate that the stunning array of both transnational and international Chinese cuisine has, for the most part, found its way to our great city.
Here are my picks for the top regional Chinese restaurants in and around Toronto.
Here are my picks for the top tacos in Toronto by neighbourhood.
