Toronto Restaurant Openings: Superpoint, Village Pizza, Su & Bu, Anchor Bar, Dark Horse Espresso

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


  • Chef Jonathan Poon and his team behind popular West Queen West spot Bar Fancy have just opened a new pizza joint at 184 Ossington Ave. called Superpoint. If the pies and pasta here are as delicious as Bar Fancy's fried chicken, then sign me up. A back bar will soon follow.
  • It seems this city can't get enough 'za, as Village Pizza has opened a second location at 761 Dundas St. W. (just west of Bathurst). Thanks, Obama!
  • Su & Bu (short for "sushi & burrito"), one of the food stalls at the CNE this year, now has a permanent location at 106 John St. (and at 8020 Bathurst St.), the space previously occupied by Union Juice. The sushi burrito mini-chain's slogan is "where Tokyo meets Tijuana," and officially opened yesterday.
  • Buffalo, NY's Anchor Bar, the "home of the original Buffalo wing," crossed the border and expanded to Hamilton awhile back, and now it's also come to Toronto, at 636 Dixon Rd. in Etobicoke, so now you don't have to travel as far to get your fill of these world-famous wings.
  • The Poke Box launched last week at 36 Toronto St. in the Financial District, serving up custom take-out poke boxes to the working masses.
  • Dark Horse Espresso Bar's new location in the Canary District at 416 Front St. E. is now open.



  • Wafels & More, an authentic Belgian waffle shop (with waffles made by a real Belgian!) should be opening very soon at 237 August Ave. in Kensington Market.
  • Fat City Bar will (re)open at 890 College St. where Fat City Blues used to operate. The concept is similar to the previous iteration with a focus of New Orleans food and drink to go along with live jazz, blues, funk, and soul.
