AYCE Italian restaurant opening in Toronto

If you're looking to gorge on carbs in Toronto, you'll soon be able to stuff yourself at a new all-you-can-eat Italian restaurant that's slated to open up in Bloorcourt.

The Chicago Don, which is taking over 901 Bloor St. W., isn't your typical Italian buffet. Unlike at Markham's Frankie Tomatto's, you won't be able to serve yourself. Rather, the servers will come around with a different main course every 10 minutes, with eight courses per cycle. Ilan Kritzer, who's behind the project, says that each day, the kitchen will choose its entrees from a bank of 80 recipes.

If you arrive during course four, for instance, you'll start there. But, on the upside, you can stick around for as many cycles as you can handle.

To start off your massive meal, you'll get to choose from appetizers including soup, bread with Sunday sauce and gourmet pizza slivers. And of course, you can cap off your feast with dessert.

Along with meaty dishes, this incoming eatery - that bills itself as a Chicago-style tapas joint - will include vegetarian and dairy-free options. Dinner will be priced at $30 on Fridays and Saturdays and at $25 for the rest of the week. According to The Chicago Don Facebook page, the restaurant is slated to open in April 2016.
