2014 Restaurant and Food Store OPENINGS!!

It is a tough time of year to open, but if a resto closes, then its space can become another boite.

Has anybody noticed any new diners or places to eat, to buy food, including new online services for delivery and/or food purchases.????

  1. Tap Kosher Market has its sign up on the site of the old Perl's location, at Bathurst/Lawrence.

    1. Thanks for the new thread, one of my favourite around here. I will throw this link in here. BlogTo's top 10 expected new spots. I think most if not all were mentioned in the 2013 thread at some point but it is good to have a reminder of what to look out for in 2014!

        ylsf -- I agree, and thanks for posting this reminder and link!!!

      2. In the former "Big Fish" space at 406 Queen West (basically across from Burger's Priest) there's a hanging sign that says "Rose City Food Co." (or something like that) that's been up for about a week. I can't find any info on google but a name that comes to mind is Anthony Rose. Anyone know anything else?

            Good find. And from that instagram post:

            " Gourmet Middle Eastern fare . Freshly made Pita , home made sauces , pickles etc ."

            Only had food from their food truck once and it was "okay". Always good to have more options in that area in case the line is too long at Burger Priest, closed at BMB or just don't feel like a burger at P & L burgers!

              that space was in very high demand and is barely larger than a foodtruck.

              spadina & queen is sandwich central: hero, bqm, priest, p&l, mcds, a&w, bmb, le gourmand, rose city, subway, nora kabob, quiznos, burro burrito.

                  I like Nora's but it is usually after a show at the Horseshoe so take it with a grain of salt!

        1. Sky Blue Sky with a current location in the Annex is opening up a 2nd one at the old Sun Media building on King down the street from George Brown...

          Via NOW magazine:

          1. Von Donuts on Danforth, just east of Pape. Haven't been myself YET, but getting some very good press and reviews from neighbours.

            Apparently the couple that own it are very sweet also.

            Their website features the Donuts of the Day list.
