big opens

The site of the for­mer Elec­tric Mud bar­be­cue joint has been res­ur­rected as SU­PER­FLY (5 Brock Ave.), a snazzy new snack bar in­spired by 1970s New York, led by alum of the Drake Ho­tel. Ex­pect cock­tails, shar­ing plates too pretty to eat, groovy tunes and an al­lyear-round pa­tio to keep the party go­ing into winter. One of Yorkville’s fave all-day din­ing spots has gone east. The new Cork­town BAR REYNA (354 King St. E.) opened its doors on April 29. Montreal deli chain ROCK’N DELI (32 Clock Tower Rd.) has just opened its first Toronto lo­ca­tion at Shops at Don Mills. THREE MONKS AND A DUCK (811 Queen St. W.) isn’t a punch­line, but a new mi­cro-bar on Queen West that seats 20 peo­ple, with a 70 per cent plant-based menu by the team be­hind iHalo Krunch, last year’s well-in­sta­grammed char­coal ice cream phe­nom­e­non. Thorn­hill now has a hot new hang­out. CAFE LO­GIN (100 Stee­les Ave. W.) is a huge new café space serv­ing espresso drinks and cakes from Rahier Patis­serie, as well as daily-chang­ing mac­arons from Young’s Mac­arons (picture flavours like dou­ble cheese and red wine fig, which we’re al­ready ob­sessed with). Get ready to slurp up a storm with

UDON KITANOYA (513 Bloor St. W.), which draws from dif­fer­ent re­gions of Japan to of­fer spe­cialty elevated bowls of udon noo­dles. The grand open­ing is set for May 18, when it will be giv­ing away 200 free bowls of noodz be­tween noon and 2 p.m. AN­I­MAL LIB­ER­A­TION KITCHEN (717 1/2 Queen St. E.) has opened in the for­mer Pulp Kitchen lo­ca­tion in River­side. Ex­pect ve­g­a­nized com­fort clas­sics like mac and cheese, pulled jack­fruit burg­ers, plus smooth­ies and green juices aplenty.

foodie finds

ONE Restau­rant (116 Yorkville Rd.) is get­ting a ma­jor glow up, with a two-part reno tak­ing place over sum­mer and fall, while the restau­rant stays open. In the mean­time, it has opened up its pa­tio and added a new spring/sum­mer menu to boot.

THE TASTEMAKER TOUR is com­ing to the Evergreen Brick Works May 10 to 12. It’s bring­ing with it sweet tunes, unique cock­tails and guar­an­teed good eats. Rich­mond Hill’s RUELO PATIS

SERIE (550 Hwy. 7 E.) just launched its new week­end brunch menu, which ranges from the clas­sic (eggs benny) to the un­ex­pected (beef bour­guignon).

NORTH OF BROOK­LYN (511 Rogers Rd.) is tak­ing its Neapoli­tan-style slices al­fresco with a new pizza pa­tio and beer gar­den, open­ing in late May. It’s clear­ing out the park­ing lot and in its place will be a lush, tree-lined 50-seat pa­tio.

sad to see you go

Fans of Craig Hard­ing’s decade­old Ital­ian eatery CAM­PAG­NOLO (832 Dun­das St. W.) have one more month be­fore the restau­rant turns out its last plate on June 1. For­tu­nately, the spirit of Cam­pag­nolo lives on in Hard­ing’s other restau­rants, La Palma, Casa La Palma and Con­stan­tine. At the end of last year, it was an­nounced that Oakville Place would lose its PUSATERI’S FINE

FOODS store af­ter only a year and a half of op­er­a­tion. The lo­ca­tion is now home to an L.L.Bean. All the five other stores will re­main in op­er­a­tion, ac­cord­ing to a Pusateri’s spokesper­son. Af­ter 10 years, DELICA KITCHEN of­fi­cially closed its three sand­wich and salad shops, in­clud­ing the flagship mid­town shop at Yonge and St. Clair. com­ing soon Spot­ted in Yorkville Vil­lage: boards an­nounc­ing He­mant Bhag­wani’s clean-eat­ing lunch counter

no more. The good news? In its place will be its sis­ter resto,

LAMESA FILIPINO KITCHEN (634 St. Clair Ave. W.), which will bring its more mod­ern, elevated Filipino dishes to the nabe in early June. As part of the large ren­o­va­tion of the Yonge Shep­pard Cen­tre, a new sign is up for FLOCK ro­tis­serie +

greens (4841 Yonge St.). Cory Vi­tiello’s rapidly ex­pand­ing health-con­scious chain also plans to add a sev­enth lo­ca­tion at Yonge and Eglin­ton. Since KONJIKI RA­MEN (5051 Yonge St.) opened its first in­ter­na­tional out­post in North York, the chain has gone on to win its first star in the Tokyo 2019 Miche­lin guide. It has an­nounced that a new lo­ca­tion will open on Elm Street. Signs are up at the forth­com­ing new SUMMERHILL MAR­KET lo­ca­tion on the Eglin­ton Way and a sec­ond new lo­ca­tion at Dupont and Bathurst, open­ing in late Septem­ber.
