A CALL TO OR­DER

Canada’s 100 Best - - On The Pass -

NICK LIU

It’s called The Assem­bly, a gourmet food hall and chef-driven com­mu­nity mar­ket slated to open this year in Toronto’s Rich­mond-Ade­laide Cen­tre. The com­plex will be part food hall, part beer par­lour, part mu­sic venue—with 638 seats spread out over 18,000 square feet on in­door and out­door space. It fea­tures lo­cal chef-per­son­al­i­ties helm­ing off­shoots of their of­fi­cial restau­rants lo­cated else­where in the city, such as Kate Tay­lor Martin of Nut­bar, the self-pro­claimed “healthy cof­fee bar.” Seventeen restau­rants from the Toronto area will be rep­re­sented in the space. Chef Ivana Raca of Uf­fi­cio ( please see p. 63) helms Resto Boemo, serv­ing Cana­dian com­fort food. She plans to tap her net­work and in­vite men­tors and col­leagues—Lynn Craw­ford, An­to­nio Park—to do guest ap­pear­ances. Other chefs tak­ing up res­i­dence in the hall in­clude Nick Liu (Dailo), Vit­to­rio Co­lacitti (The Good Son) and Elia Her­rera (Los Colib­ris and El Ca­bal­lito). —D.S.
