The top 10 new restaurants in Toronto from summer 2018
New restaurants that opened in Toronto this summer gave us brand new options for traditionally-made tortillas, locally-raised meats, and new kinds of dumplings and sushi. It can be tough to keep track of all the exciting new restaurants that open over the short and busy summer months, so here they are rounded up. You're welcome.
Here are my picks for the top new restaurants that opened in Toronto this summer.
This low-ceilinged Little Italy restaurant sources ingredients from Mexico and uses a traditional clay comal to make tortillas.
Locally-raised meats are butchered on site and served at this Riverside restaurant. Mostly focusing on beef, the menu is an exciting rotation of cuts that usually always includes one superb burger.
Though Roncesvalles Village may have bid farewell to jazz bar Gate 403 this year, this Asian fusion cocktail bar popped up in its place serving dishes like raw seafood tartares and craft beer.
Where you used to be able to get soup at Big Beef Bowl you can now get Shanghai-style fried soup dumplings. Steamy bao may not seem like the thing to eat during a sweltering summer, but they’re divine no matter what time of the year it is.
This corner spot on Dundas West that replaced an Italian sandwich place has been turning out ssam lettuce wraps and bulgogi beef with house kimchi on their patio all summer.
House noodles and dumplings along with Oaxaca cheese, avocado and egg sammies are now available for brunch in Bloordale from this spot in place of the former Nordic offerings from Karelia Kitchen.
The Food Dudes tackled a new concept this summer in the form of made-to-order thin crust pizza with options for pies with red or white house sauces and toppings like Ezzo pepperoni. Head to Leslieville and get your last strawberry rooibos soft serve of the summer here.
Hand rolls are the order of the day at this sushi spot that opened on Ossington this summer, in a block of businesses slotted in below a newly constructed condo.
