Open/Closed for the week of April 21-27

Tune in every Friday for my list of newly opened and recently shuttered places.

This week, there’s a lot happening, so let’s dig in: 


Market Street Catch
14 Market St.

An extension of Buster’s Sea Cove in the St. Lawrence Market, this newer, expanded location means you can eat your Coconut Shrimp or Seafood Platter for 1 in peace, without having to squeeze in next to the cheese stall or the box of live mussels.

LOFT Kitchen
850 Bloor St. W.

LOFT Kitchen celebrated their grand opening last night. And celebrate they should. With a focus to employ youths and serve local, healthy & sustainable food at a reasonable price, it will no doubt be a neighbourhood hangout in no time.

Farmer's Daughter
1588 Dupont St.

The Farmhouse Tavern family expands with their new spot, Farmer's Daughter, opening tomorrow night (fingers crossed). 

With a sleek, modern room and seafood-influenced menu by the dazzling Chef Léonie Lilla (Daishō, The Libertine), Farmer’s Daughter will clearly be as popular as her parents down the road. 

The Passenger
2968 Dundas St. W.

The Passenger specializes in local, sustainable and seasonal fare, with fun dishes like their Deviled Eggs appetizer, which harkens back to a simpler time. Ahh, a simpler time. Doesn't that sound good right about now?

Ed’s Real Scoop
189 Roncesvalles Ave.

Just in time for the slightly warmer weather, Ed’s expands his ice cream empire out to Roncey. 


The iconic institution Dinah’s Cupboard shut its doors this week. A presence on Cumberland Avenue for 35 years, Dinah’s offered salads and sandwiches to go, and housed gourmet teas, cookies, and pantry items for sale in charming cupboards and armoires. 

Luckily, we’ve still got Dinah.
