"The Combine Eatery" opening soon

On the Danforth, directly opposite of Allen's. I walked by there today. The windows are papered up and there's the sound of renovations going on inside. No info as to who's working in the kitchen or what kind of food they will serve. We shall see.

                  Apparently it opened yesterday. Found one reference with pics and review of menu, but not sure if this is just PR or legitimately independent. Anyone tried it yet, I will head over in next few days and post a review if no one else beats me to it. Here is the review

                    Hmm. Amy Chow was the owner of the ill-fated True Restaurant in Yorkville.

                          Does anyone know if they open for lunch at this time or are they just open for dinner?

        1. $10 for 3 tacos.
          These better be big tacos or quality tacos.
          I was 1 block away from there yesterday and was starving. To be honest, that price point is what prevented me from checking it out.

          1. Went last week to check out this new place with friends. The service was great and so was the menu, if you're in the mood for lighter fare though, probably not the best choice with things like mac and cheese and meatloaf as their signature dishes. I tried the ribs, which were of the wet variety and heavy on the tomato so they kinda reminded me of my mom's pasta sauce. Everything was plated nicely with lots of edible garnishes. Aps were tasty and fun to share (lobster fritters, onion rings, quesadillas). Food items were good value for money but the cocktails are definitely on the pricey side.

            One thing about the decor, this minimalist design that's all de rigeur right now, without a scrap of fabric to absorb any sound makes for a very loud restaurant when it's full. End up shouting to the person sitting next to you because you can't hear your friends sitting across the table. Whatever happened to form following function? Might have stayed longer for a coffee but it was just too bloody loud.
