Former Bar Buca chef opens in Tem­plar Ho­tel

Plus Sash Simp­son is open­ing a wine bar, and Mt. Pleas­ant gets Omakase

Bayview Post - - Food -

Fine Ja­panese din­ing comes to mid­town at (643A Mt. Pleas­ant Rd.). En­joy a fouror nine-course sea­sonal omakase menu (with sake pair­ings, if you so de­sire) made from in­gre­di­ents im­ported di­rectly from the land of the ris­ing sun.


Clockwise from left: Mother Tongue’s an­gel eggs with foie gras mousse, the snazzy bar at Reg­u­lars, LOB’s Nashville hot chicken sand­wich Lit­tle Italy’s new­est hole-in-the­wall (316 Col­lege St.) is the per­fect place to try out Wuhan-style cui­sine and get your fill of de­li­cious, de­li­cious duck. Just be pre­pared: the spice level may be a bit much for Wuhan cui­sine neo­phytes.


De­spite the name, this new healthy eat­ing resto from the founder of David’s Tea does not have any dis­grun­tled veg­eta­bles on the menu. In­stead, (2293 Yonge St.) serves up fresh and nu­tri­tious dishes from cae­sar sal­ads to Mex­i­can chicken stew.


Yorkville’s tony (60 Yorkville Ave.) just got a head-to­toe makeover. Chef Daniel Boulud re­vamped the eats, and the newly ren­o­vated space fea­tures some flashy LED art. Stop by and sip one of Dar­ryl Chan’s new cock­tail cre­ations.


The new (651 Col­lege St.) is the sec­ond lo­ca­tion for the owner of Sala Mod­ern Thai on the Dan­forth. The res­tau­rant is as es­thet­i­cally pleas­ing as they come, with vi­brant, painstak­ingly plated dishes (made us­ing au­then­tic Thai recipes) and an in­te­rior that boasts a beau­ti­ful wood bar

IMM THAI KITCHEN com­ing soon

(1133 Yonge St.), a fine din­ing ven­ture in the works from North 44’s head chef of more than 23 years, Sash Simp­son. He says to ex­pect a mod­ern Amer­i­can menu with a global in­fu­sion. Con­struc­tion is mov­ing along nicely, so start look­ing for the doors to open in late 2018. Speak­ing of North 44, the new

(2537 Yonge St.) open­ing in the up­town leg­end’s former space is still on track for win­ter 2018. Bring on the roasted lamb shoul­der and the wood-fired pide topped with wagyu!


Also, com­ing any day now is that new (101 Eglin­ton Ave. E.) at Yonge and Eg. Think all-day café plus all-Ital­ian carb­filled faves.


Signs are up out­side of the Yonge and Lawrence lo­ca­tion that has seen sev­eral play­ers since lo­cal Ital­ian favourite Bindi’s said ar­rived­erci. Looks like a new Chi­nese con­cept (3241 Yonge St.) is set to open in the space.
