Toronto Restaurant Openings: Atlas, AF1 Caribbean Canteen, GB Hand-Pulled Noodles

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
  • Atlas, a Moroccan restaurant from chef Doug Penfold (Cava, Chabrol), has just opened at 18 Dupont St. (at Avenue Rd.)
  • AF1 Caribbean Canteen from chef Adrian Forte (The Dirty Bird) has taken over the high-turnover corner spot at 596 College St. (at Clinton St.) in Little Italy. Let's hope this one sticks.
  • GB Hand-Pulled Noodles is now serving up bowls of freshly made Lanzhou-style noodles (you can choose from two types and a variety of thicknesses) at 66 Edward St. across from the Toronto Coach Terminal.

Opening soon
  • North York's Sheppard station is getting its own Hcafe by Uncle Tetsu in May, and will feature mochi and ice cream in addition to its famous Japanese cheesecakes.
  • Lox + Schmear, a "quick service sandwich shop" with Montreal-style bagels, house-cured and lightly smoked salmon plus (of course) cream cheese, is opening in June at 1030 St. Clair Ave. W.
  • The Plant YYZ, offering local, sustainable and ethically sourced food, will open at 2745 Dundas St. W. in the Junction next month.
  • Filipino restaurant and bar Bikini in Manila opens this weekend, replacing Lily Garden at 361 Wilson Ave. (near Bathurst) in North York.
Closed
  • Sadly, the Leslieville location of Pizza Thick is no more. Those craving Regina-style pizza can still get their fill at its 536 Queen St. W. location.
