Rose and Sons to takeover former Swan space

That didn't take long. Shortly over a month since longtime West Queen West diner Swan packed it in for good comes news that Chef Anthony Rose has acquired the space. Toronto Life reports that the new restaurant will go by the name Swan by Rose and Sons and will feature a similar menu to the original location.

The Queen St. address represents something of departure from Rose, who has been busy building a small restaurant empire on Dupont Street (he now boasts Fat Pasha, Schmaltz Appetizing, and Big Crow in addition to Rose and Sons). That said, the modern diner concept will work just perfectly in this location.

We'll see what Rose does to revamp the space (and whether or not he can incorporate any of the original signage), but the rear patio will be an appealing new addition. The restaurant is supposed to open in the summer, so expect it to busy from day one.
