Open now
  • Craque de Creme, a crème brûlée cafe, has opened at 1360 Bathurst St. (between Davenport and St. Clair).
  • Southeast Asian spot Shanee has replaced Soi Thai (which was supposedly shuttered for renovations this summer, but it seems its owner has decided to change the name and concept of the place entirely) at 651 College St. in Little Italy.
  • Death and Taxes Free House is now open at 1154 Queen St. W., occupying what was previously The Beaconsfield.
  • Ama, an Argentinian resto-bar from Sebastian Gallucci, who was behind the Argentine food truck Che, opens today at 930 Queen St. W., which was last known as Cadillac Jenkins.
