Toronto Restaurant Openings: Buca Yorkville, Dear Jools, Bill Hicks, Ovest Cucina, Tacorrito

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

NOW OPEN

  • The much-anticipated Buca Osteria & Bar is finally open at the Four Seasons (53 Scollard St.) in Yorkville. Distinguishing itself from the original King St. location, the new restaurant offers a broader selection of fresh seafood, including house-made salumi di mare, in addition to their much-loved pizzas and pasta dishes.
  • Dear Jools (Thai-Tanium was just the latest diversion, and seriously, I can't believe I fell for it again) finally opens its doors this weekend following a one day pop-up market dubbed Bro Appetit happening this Saturday, October 18.
  • Prenup Pub is now open at 191 College St. across from UofT, boasting 70 beers on tap.
