Wolfgang Puck evicted on Sheppard at Yonge

Really disappointing. Saw eviction notices the other day. Is that the end of it or is it still possible they could figure something out and open?

  1. I seem to recall seeing a notice about him opening a restaurant around Avenue and Eglinton. I may be mistaken.

      Signs have been up at the former 7 Numbers sight forever.
      There must be some good behind-the-scenes story about Puck's inability to open a resto here.

      I tried the one in Niagara Falls and, while not earth-shaking, it was a nice midrange place. I dunno what the problem is...

        I don't think this is Puck's doing — he sells the rights to the name.

        The Avenue/Eglinton restaurant is no more. I passed by yesterday and the signs were down.


      3. Last night I was having a beer on from friend's balcony and I just noticed the Wolfgang Puck restaurant. Mentioned how excited I was that a WP restaurant was opening just downstairs from their building. Now I'm so disappointed to hear about the eviction. Any further news concerning this?

          Don't be disappointed. Be happy that you will not have an opportunity to waste your money. Several years ago we ate at WP in Oakville (QEW and Winston Churchill)... a complete waste of time. Food was mediocre and over-priced. He sells his name but that is no assurance of quality. Will never go near another one of these again.

            The Pucks in Niagara Falls is really good quality for a chain.
