New Years Day - 2011 - open vs. closed

Please post in this thread if you know whether or not a restaurant in GTA is open or closed on New Years Day.

I checked 2 BBQ places

Paul and Sandys - closed
Blue Sage - closed
Whole Foods (Oakville closed, Yorkville open special hours)

Saw in another thread:

Hoof Cafe - Open
Black Hoof - Closed

Unfortunately the CH forum software doesn't let me go and edit this post after a certain length of time so I can't keep it all up to date in this first post.
