  1. Well that sounds like a nail in the coffin for Dundas W cool.

    1. Don't get me wrong, could be great. But that's a big move.

        I just hope he is going to really push the envelope!! HUGELY! SHOCK US SUSUR!!!!

        If it is the same ole Susur I personally no longer have an interest. I am still bummed out about the Lee expansion instead of the new concept that was supposed to arrive!

      2. Write up on Blogto about this too:

        Not sure if it offers any new info from your links, didn't get a chance to read them yet.

        1. Who knows what Susur and family will give us, but I think the telling line is that they are targeting a younger audience. To me that means lower prices and lots of cocktails. If Susur didn't make magic happen in NYC or with his recent reno, I wouldn't expect it for a shop he is setting up for his, barely out of their teens, sons. I hope he proves me wrong.

              And just maybe, Lee will get a professional manager and re-target at adults!
              We all win.

                Or....just maybe they will simply do an awesome job the way they have set out.

                Younger crowd does not = crap food
                Novice front of house does not = failure

          2. Cool! I'm excited to see this, I love how his kids are involved
