Richmond Hill Post - - News -

The Rally Restau­rant and Bar has opened up in a mas­sive space in the Madi­son Cen­tre, re­plac­ing the Moxie’s Grill & Bar that was for­merly in the space. This new out­post is more up­scale and food fo­cused than the orig­i­nal Rally sports bar on O’Con­nor Drive, with sleek leather ban­quettes and smaller screens than your av­er­age sports bar. The menu fea­tures com­fort clas­sics with a flair and cock­tails to boot (4950 Yonge St., 647-352-0080).

Thorn­hill res­i­dents look­ing for a fine din­ing Per­sian ex­pe­ri­ence might want to check out Farsi Dine- In. The chefs here use tra­di­tional cooking tech­niques and in­gre­di­ents to cre­ate some clas­sic and unique Per­sian dishes. A se­lec­tion of kebab and tahchin op­tions high­light the tra­di­tional as­pects of the menu, which also of­fers a unique take on pizza and sand­wiches. With ex­ten­sive cater­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, this restau­rant can pro­vide your next event with au­then­tic Per­sian dishes (8159 Yonge St., 647-686-9953).

Wing lovers have a new pickup spot to check in Rich­mond Hill. Poppa G’s Wings spe­cial­izes in frozen wings that taste fresh. They quickly freeze their wings so that the flavour and fresh­ness is main­tained, al­low­ing cus­tomers to take them home. The wings come in a va­ri­ety of sauces and rubs, and this spot also sells chicken stock and bone­less wings (75 West Beaver Creek Rd., #11, 289-597-9464). Just in time for the cosiest sea­son, The Knit­ting Loft opened in Oc­to­ber. Bring­ing its phi­los­o­phy of heal­ing and med­i­ta­tion through the prac­tice of knit­ting (or cro­chet­ing) to the busi­ness, the Knit­ting Loft is more of a com­mu­nity cen­tre than a re­tail store: there’s a café stocked with cof­fee and or­ganic teas, and they host cre­ative work­shops and classes on all things yarn re­lated (672 Wil­son Ave., 416-631-0060).

Hey Noo­dles has opened a brand new lo­ca­tion in Rich­mond Hill and is of­fer­ing a se­lec­tion of noo­dle com­bi­na­tions, as well as the op­tion to cus­tom­ize your own dish. All dishes can be cus­tomized ac­cord­ing to noo­dle pref­er­ence, den­sity, spice level and “numb­ness” level. A stand­out favourite fea­ture is the free noo­dle re­fill; cus­tomers are given the op­tion to get more noo­dles as many times as they please. Note that it is only noo­dles and not the ac­tual bowl or broth (1 Spad­ina Rd., Unit 12, 905-737-5855).
