New at King & Jarvis
Found out from a friend that Roger Mooking is opening a new place called Kultura Social Dining at 169 King St E @ Jarvis this weekend. He's even managed to hire sommelier Kim Cyr away from George. I think it's invitation only this weekend. It looks like it may be the hot spot of the Corktown. Very exciting.
So I went to the opening party on Saturday (there was also one on Friday). Due to an earlier commitment, I couldn't stay long enough to sit down and eat, but I am DEFINITELY going back soon.
The first floor is a loungey area with floor to ceiling windows, second floor restaurant-style seating (exposed brick, dark wood floors, skylight at the back), and the third floor I'm guessing is going to be for parties/DJs.
Great music (even some old-school R&B!), the hors d'oeuvres were superb (perfectly grilled satay shrimp, tempura tofu), and there was no attitude--just good energy.
