Mystery restaurant to host one-day pop-up market

Remember that storefront on Queen St. that was going to be a cupcake bakery, then an Americana-themed joint, then a sandwich shop, then something called Dear Jools and, finally, a Thai place called Thai-tanium?

The proprietor of 785 Queen St. West - Monte Wan of Khao San Road - has been playing with our hearts for a long, long time. But it looks like he's finally willing to make a bold step toward commitment - by opening up the space for one shining afternoon and letting people actually consume food there.

This Saturday, October 18, from 11am to 3pm, the restaurant will host a lunchtime pop-up event called Bro Appetit, featuring chow from a slew of local chefs and restaurants.

All your usual food-scene upstarts will be there: Come and Get It, Lisa Marie, Banh Mi Boys, Matt Blondin and Food Dudes' JUNK, and a half-dozen more. Admission is free, with all dishes $5 or less, so come out for yourself and see if the restaurant was really just an elaborate mirage the whole time.
