Toronto Restaurant Openings: Harry's, Potbelly Sandwich Shop, Montaditos, Matcha Tea Dessert

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.

OPEN NOW

  • Grant Van Gameren has taken over and revived Harry's Charbroiled, a greasy spoon that lasted 48 years in Parkdale, and it's open for business at 160 Springhurst Ave. Let's hope this diner lives on for at least another 48.
  • American chain Potbelly Sandwich Shop opened its first Canadian location on Wednesday at 83 Yonge St. This chain originates from Chicago, and features signature sandwiches like the A Wreck, a toasted sandwich with salami, roast beef, turkey & ham and Swiss cheese with your choice of bread and toppings. A second location will soon open across from the ROM at 180 Bloor St. W.
  • Spanish sandwich shop Montaditos is now open at 824 Dundas St. W. at Euclid St., with snack-sized sammies (which is basically what "montaditos" means in Spanish) filled with ingredients like serrano ham, chorizo and manchego cheese.

OPENING SOON

  • Vancouver coffee mini-chain JJ Bean apparently really loves Toronto, as it's opening its third location here this year, this time at Yonge & St. Clair (at 2 St. Clair W., specifically). Inspired by the homes in the area, this shop's design will look like a house, with a roof and a patio. It should be open on Oct. 24.
  • The former Pisco 1641 in Little Italy will soon transform into Mochica at 614 College St. The restaurant, which already has a location in Montreal (and an affiliated hotel in Peru) will remain Peruvian.
  • The Drake will soon open a Drake Commissary on Sterling Rd. right by Henderson Brewing and the future MOCCA. Funnily enough, Drake (the rapper) has a history on that street as well.
  • Matcha Tea Dessert is putting the final touches on its first Toronto location at 407 Spadina Avenue in Chinatown. Expect ice cream, baked goods and all sorts of matcha-infused sweets.
