Toronto restaurant openings: Burger's Priest opens on Queen, Switch, Craft Dogs, Rose and Sons barbecue

Toronto Restaurant Openings highlights the latest restaurant openings and closings in Toronto and also gives a preview at some of the places coming soon. Find us here every Thursday morning.

OPEN NOW

  • The Queen and Spadina location of the Burger's Priest finally opened its doors on Monday, so you can expect the lineups to start, well, right about now. Note: It would appear that the Queen/Spadina location isn't ready just yet. Apologies if your mouth is already watering.
  • Switch, the latest from Hanif Harji, is now serving customers with its eclectic sharing plates and arcade games. Don't forget the "haute" hot dogs (via Toronto Life).

COMING SOON

  • As we reported earlier this week, there's new life at the Barn on Church Street. The Marquis of Granby is a pub and event space that should be opening by the end of next week.
  • The food trend battle between gourmet hot dogs and taco joints continues with the anticipated arrival of Craft Dogs. While the concept of a "gourmet" hot dog has always been kind of funny, these made-from-scratch offerings might hit the mark. (via View the Vibe).
  • Rose and Sons is getting into the barbecue game with the addition of a new seasonal restaurant that will operate behind the original restaurant. (via the Grid)
  • Charles Khabouth wants to bring a bit of Miami to Polson Street in the form of Cabana Pool Bar, which is set to open at the Sound Academy sometime in mid-June. With space for 2,500 expect this to be one of douchiest trendiest places in the city. (via the Star)

OTHER NEWS

  • Diner mainstay the Senator is upping its coffee game with the addition of a La Marzocco espresso machine and will launch a new menu on June 18th. Stay tuned.
  • Tomorrow marks the last day of duty for Hawthorne's restaurant director and executive chef. Elle Boutilier and Binh An Nguyen will leave the business to pursue new opportunities.
