  • Queen West has a new destination for macarons, Butter Avenue (sorry Nadege). The patisserie and cafe has opened at second downtown location at 477 Queen St. West.
  • NODO, a new Italian trattoria, opened this week in the Junction at 2885 Dundas St. West.
  • The 31st floor of Trump Tower (325 Bay St.) underwent a flash facelift this past week. Just in time for TIFF, the restaurant, formerly known as Stock, has been reinvented as America, an all-new concept helmed by Oliver & Bonacini and INK Entertainment.

OPENING SOON

  • @bucatoronto and @chefrobgentile have been teasing out peeks at the new Buca Yorkville (55 Scollard St.) on Instagram all week. It looks close. Real close.
  • It looks like Denny's isn't the only U.S. chain coming to Bay and Dundas. Bareburger, an all-natural, organic burger chain hailing from Queens, New York, is slated to debut in Toronto this November at a yet-to-be-announced address. [Eater]

OTHER NEWS

  • Jerk chicken and noodle destination Rasta Pasta, at 61 Kensington Ave., has expanded taking over the adjacent address.
