So we have heard about or noticed two new restaurants that are close to opening on Ossington. After a few recent closings and nothing else, it’s nice to see some forward momentum in the neighborhood.
A few sources mentioned the soft opening of Bohmer last week during the Interior Design show. We peeked in on the weekend, and the space looks large and luxe. Some art on the walls made us think it was a gallery at first, but then we saw the bar. Don’t know when it’s opening, so if you do, please tip us off!
Second thing we noticed, a little north from there, was an awning is out for Salt, next to Libretto. Signs were up last summer noting an early fall launch, which never materialized. A wine bar with small plates, meats and cheeses? We were really upset when it looked like it wasn’t happening. Now it looks like it is! According to an article last year in Martini Boys (PR dreams, but they’re right sometimes!), Salt should open in February. Have you seen today’s date? February is this weekend! So, keep us posted and we’ll do the same for you.
More rumours: a grocery store maybe opening soon on Ossington?
More truths: one art gallery closes, another moves in. More to come.
