New Restaurant Coming to Dundas and Ossington
The team behind popular Ossington pizza spot Superpoint is opening a new restaurant in the long empty former gallery space at 1161 Dundas Street West. Called Paris Paris, this is Jonathan Poon and Jesse Fader’s newest restaurant – and wine bar. The business is truly a neighborhood venture, with owners from Mamakas and Camp 4 also on the Paris Paris team. According to their instagram account they are now hiring cooks and plan to open very soon.
