Bacchus Parkdale

Bacchus Gets a Makeover, Chino Becomes Manhattan

Bacchus, the venerable Parkdale roti shop (and one of the best in the city) has a new look. Gone is the uber casual environs and Caribbean blue walls and in their place is a surprisingly stylish setup that includes white leather seats, modern wood tables and fancy chairs.

At first glance, I'm not sure what to make of it. While the new interior is still casual enough, I wonder if the more modern aesthetic might alienate some of the regular crowd. And then part of me can't help feeling that this makeover is the ultimate sign of Parkdale's gentrification (at least the stretch east of Lansdowne anyway).

And right next door, the short lived Chino is no longer. In its place is the why is this place named Manhattan Manhattan. Here's a photo of their brunch menu:
