There’s been a lot of activity in the local restaurant scene these days. First, a recap on the new openings: Both The Grow Op and Omaw are now open and serving, as you can read about in our earlier posts. (Omaw even got a later write-up in the Toronto Star yesterday). Neither restaurant seems to have a website, but Grow Op is posting photos on Instagram.
Some sad news to report is that Jewish restaurant Essen, which used to be Quinta, at 1282 Dundas West, is now closed, according to Toronto Life. They closed the doors about a week ago and are not replacing it with another restaurant.
The space where Philip Sparks had his shop is also in transition, soon to be a food venue from the team behind Hawker Bar.
