The Crest Gastro Pub

boxcarira Jul 19, 2012 06:11 PM

Looks like something new is moving into the St. Clair West neighborhood..

Was walking between Arlington and Atlas today and noticed that the old Portucale (the old Dagianni et maria ) restaurant was covered in black tiles and had a printed peice of paper with the name "The Crest Gastro Bar" taped inside the window.

There were some people inside talking (who knows if it was contractors/owners/chef..but could see inside. Looked great from what i coudl see. Nice new bar. a couple of large reclaimed wood tables.

I wonder if anyone has any info on this - ie who is it? what makes it gastro? etc?

With Stazione opened up and the Pipers Pub seeming to draw a resonable crowd, lets hope this stretch of St. Clair keeps the tradition of the east side of Arlington going!

Cant' wait to it opens so we can find out!

    I drove by today and they had graphics up in the windows. The telephone number is also active and gives operating hours but I can't find anything else about the place.

    According to the answering machine, www.thecrest.ca is their website, but it's not up and running yet.

        Looks like a Tony Soprano kind of place. Always face the door!
