Opening soon
  • Godspeed Brewery, a brewpub by former Dieu du Ciel! brewmaster Luc "Bim" Lafontaine, is set to debut sometime this spring at 242 Coxwell Ave. (at Gerrard St. E.).
  • Deep dish pizza joint Double D's seems poised to open any day now.
  • Jen Agg's much anticipated Kensington Market venture Grey Gardens is expected to open within two weeks (a timeline that's roughly confirmed by the progress documented on Instagram).
Other news
  • The Black Hoof will be closed temporarily for the remainder of the winter as light renovations and a new prep kitchen are installed in the space. These changes will also lead to the expansion of Cocktail Bar across the street.
  • Branca has just launched a late-night tiny bar inspired by the ones found in Tokyo's Golden Gai. From midnight until last call on Fridays and Saturdays, it can be found behind the Frida Kahlo print curtain of the restaurant.
