OPEN NOW

  • Borealia, a new restaurant at 59 Ossington Ave., is now open and dishing out modern takes on recipes of Canada's indigenous peoples and early settlers.

    t Pizzeria Libretto is teaming up with Porchetta & Co. to open adjacent eateries in the new year, but we finally know where. The new destination for pizza and/or pork is coming to 545 King St. West between Spadina and Bathurst.
  • Furlough, a new cocktail bar and bistro from BarChef, is in the works at 924 Queen St. West.
  • Triple A Bar is expanding in the new year, with a second location coming to 1276 Queen St. East in Leslieville.

  • Tosto Quickfire Pizza Pasta, a new Italian fast food concept, is coming to 800 Bay St.

CLOSING

  • The Corkscrew on College has closed which is no surprise considering that corner lot at 596 College St. at Clinton might be best known for its rapid restaurant turnover.
  • The Greek at 567 King St. West looks to be no more - the windows are papered over and show no signs of life.
