10 new restaurants that opened in Toronto last month

New restaurants in Toronto continue to open at a brisk pace now that lockdowns, hopefully, are a thing of the past. From traditional British pub fare to Mexican-Mediterranean fusion, there's likely a new restaurant for everyone on this list.

Here are new restaurants that opened in Toronto last month.

Beast Pizza

The owners of the former Beast Restaurant have opened a new baby in the same King West location. They serve luxurious appetizers like cheesy, melt-in-your-mouth bone marrow and Italian classics like fresh pasta and pizza.

Adrak Yorkville

Adrak has opened its second location in Yorkville, serving elevated Indian cuisine that balances tradition and modernity. They have many sharing plates to choose from if you're going out in a big group, as well as an extensive dessert menu. 

Casa Madera

Executive chef Olivier Le Calvez serves intricate Mexican-Mediterranean fusion dishes with touches of Japanese and Italian influence at this spot inside 1 Hotel. Expect menu items like Hamachi Serrano from the raw bar, as well as juicy Pollo Asado.

Slowhand Pizza

What started as a secret pizza joint has now officially become a permanent location in Leslieville. That isn't surprising, considering they regularly sold out within hours as a pop-up. 

Saint John's Tavern

This new spot in the Entertainment District serves classic British fare in a warm and cozy pub environment. Owner Brian Donnelly refers to the dishes here as what he remembers eating as a kid - fish and chips, bangers and mash with garlicky potatoes and scotch egg, just to name a few.

Bar Chica

This King West tapas bar is from the same owners as nearby Patria. Expect small, intricate plates that are rooted in Spanish tradition but use local Ontario ingredients. Their patatas bravas, prepared with duck fat-pressed potato pavé hidden under three purées, is a showstopper. 

On/Off

If you're looking for a trendy late-night bar with delicious eats, On/Off is a new spot in Koreatown North that offers just that. They serve East Asian dishes like Taiwanese popcorn chicken and grilled unagi in a dimly-lit atmosphere complete with loud hip-hop music.

Mabu Cafe

From the makers of Mabu Generation, this Scarborough newcomer is the city's newest location for next level, Hong Kong-style plates. They have an extensive menu of traditional meals found in Hong Kong cafes like molten salted egg yolk french toast with pork floss and milk tea.

J's Steak Frites

This West Queen West restaurant has one dinner item, and one dinner item only - steak frites. Every order of this decadent meal comes with fresh housemade bread, butter and endless piles of frites. Chef and co-owner Tara Tang is a Cordon Bleu trained pastry chef too, so be sure to leave room for dessert.
