New resto from the folks who run Cava & Chabrol

big opens

First came T.O.’s best ribs, then pizza, and now the fi­nal child has emerged into the world:

ADAMBAKERY. Sit­ting pretty in SON the back of Adam­son Bar­be­cue at 176 Wick­steed Ave., this bake shop is helmed by pas­try chef Dani DeRoo who re­fuses to let the goods stray from their south­ern roots. Or­der your key lime pie, blue­berry cus­tard squares or lemon co­conut crunch cake in ad­vance and prep thy stom­ach. Ar­gen­tine cui­sine is fi­nally find­ing its foot­ing in T.O., and TANTO, at 74 Oss­ing­ton Ave., is here to prove it. Chef Ju­lian Iliopou­los is in the kitchen, hav­ing learned the ways of the world from chefs Chris McDon­ald and Doug Penfold (oh, and a jaunt to Ar­gentina). Nosh on grilled squid with burnt al­mond salsa, short ribs with chimichurri.… Where can one find chefs Jackie Lin, Ivana Raca, Nick Liu and more un­der one roof? En­ter

HALL, a gi­ant AS­SEM­BLY CHEF’S food hall now open at 111 Rich­mond St. W. With so many op­tions avail­able (from ra­men to health grub) where to even start?

foodie finds

You had us at “eggette.”

EGGETTE HUT, brand new at 3255 High­way 7, Suite 36B, is all about Hong Kong–style waf­fles. Call ’em eggette, egg waf­fles, bub­ble waf­fles or what­ever you wish, but these pup­pies — crisp on the ex­te­rior and fluffy in­side — come in flavours like cheese ex­plo­sion and or­ange choco­late. We want.

AI SUSHI is gun­ning to be your fave new sushi spot at 10650 Les­lie St., Unit 1. Fre­quenters of Markham may al­ready know the name thanks to the orig­i­nal lo­ca­tion. Tuck into ev­ery­thing from un­agi sashimi to tam­ago, to spicy scal­lop roll to don­buri. Who knew that deep in the belly of Union Sta­tion lies tasty Ital­iana. has chef Michael

AMANO An­geloni dish­ing out all the pas­tas (called “fat tubes” or “green shells” for those non-lin­guists) in a rather buzzy at­mos­phere. Cam­pan­elle, strewn with Dun­geness crab and pancetta, are what win­ter food dreams to be.

TUK TUK CAN­TEEN, found at 397 Ron­ces­valles Ave., sees af­fa­ble chef-owner Mike Tan turn­ing out Cam­bo­dian fare. Think red curry with squid in oys­ter sauce and mow­able chicken wings with fish sauce and lime. Tan re­cently trav­elled to Cam­bo­dia with his par­ents, who hadn’t been since they es­caped the Kh­mer Rouge, to learn about the cui­sine of his roots while si­mul­ta­ne­ously film­ing a doc. So. Chef Ryan Camp­bell has deserted his chef de cui­sine post at Rob Gen­tile’s Buca Yorkville and has jit­ter­bugged it over to

IL COVO. Found at 585 Col­lege St., this new resto does — you guessed it — Ital­ian food! En­ter the lat­est pop­u­lar kid in school.

com­ing soon

Ja­panese favourite

CHEESE GAR­DEN is com­ing to 3250 Mid­land Ave. in early Fe­bru­ary, aim­ing to sate all those dou­ble fro­mage cheese­cake needs. In time for Valen­tine’s Day, they’ll be serv­ing a white cheese­cake with souf­flé atop an Oreo base with white choco­late curls to fin­ish. In a case of a beau­ti­ful pair­ing, Cosimo Mam­moliti of

TERRONI and Stephen Alexan­der of

shall be open­ing a CUMBRAE’S still-un­named resto in the for­mer post of­fice space at Yonge and Mont­gomery. Des­tined for a spring 2019 ar­rival, we’re promised a 20,000-square-foot resto­plus-food shop. We weep with joy. Chef known for his char­cu­terie goes … ve­gan? Well not quite, but Grant van Gameren plus Max Rimaldi and Jamie Cook (both Li­bretto dudes) are open­ing

to serve plant-based ROSALINDA Mex­i­can grub. (Or you can ac­tu­ally call it “ve­gan.”) Ar­riv­ing in the Fi­nan­cial Dis­trict, the resto’s exec chefs are Kate Chomyshyn and Julio Gua­jardo. Chef Craig Hard­ing is oh so busy with many things in­clud­ing CON

STANTINE, his lat­est resto, set to open at 15 Charles St. E. this spring. This food will reach from Italy to the Mid­dle East.…
