Amuse-Cusine in Beach

Just noticed this little spot off Queen that looks like it may have some potential. Amuse-Cusine, has an opening soon sign out front advertising local, seasonal, ala minute food.
Looks interesting.....anybody have the full scoop?

  1. Is that the place on Waverley, just south of Queen behind the Mr. Sub? I've been wondering about that too.

      Yeah, I'm fascinated too - it would be so great to have a good restro. in the beach. I went to their website just now but it's just a placeholder - too bad. If anyone knows anything please tell...

      1. re: SharkfinSoup

        I go by there almost every day so I'll keep an eye out and give an update if there is any change.

        1. re: ms. clicquot

          yes please do....thanks! So far, it sounds very intriguing.

      1. Hey millygirl & Ms clicquot - Amuse-cuisine is now open.

        Their menu is posted on the board outside - looks very promising indeed!

          I'm glad to hear that! Thanks for the update. I've been stuck inside with a nasty flu for the past week so I haven't been by in a while. I may take a stroll tomorrow to check it out. I'll report back as soon as I try some of their food. My fingers are crossed - we need something new and delicious in these parts!

            Thanks sharkfinsoup. Sounds very intriguing....please report back if you are able to provide more details on menu, etc.

        2. Their website has the current menu posted -

          1975 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4L1J1, CA

            Thanks for posting JamieK. I tried searching but could not find anything.

            1. re: millygirl

              I can't believe they actually opened! Look forward to hearing the reviews if I don't make it there first.

              Is it possible that the unthinkable may happen? Good food in the Beach? I sure as heck hope so.

            2. re: JamieK

              Umm, it doesnt do anything when i click on menu... anyone know how to get the menu workin'?

              1. re: jennjen18

                after you click on menu, click on "Late Winter Menu" and a pdf opens up. It's working now.

            3. Has anyone heard of the chef? Robert Jamie White. He's not on chefdb

       did you learn the chef's name? When I clicked on About us on their website it said coming soon.

                1. re: millygirl

                  It's on the bottom of the downloadable menu. (Salivating from afar--I've been living in the States for nearly a year and hope a good local restaurant doesn't close before I get home to try it!)

                  1. re: DylS

                    Ha, ha. Well if it's good, it won't close! Well, theoretically.

                    1. re: JamieK

                      Au contraire, JamieK. This is Toronto, where quality and success seem to be related inversely. (I'm getting way to cynical as the years fly by....)

                  2. re: millygirl

                    Just an update. According to chefdb, the executive chef at Amuse is Mariano Rodriguez, ex-Spoke Club -

                    I think White was previously with Didier.
