The long anticipated Union Restaurant has now opened along Ossington. After Toronto Life gave him a blog to document his process, he only gave them about 6-7 cryptic posts about the progress of the place. Today I learned from Melissa Davis of YDF in her post documenting her visit last night to the new restaurant.
After pronouncements of “Opening Soon” hitting the headlines I think those who lived in the neighbourhood were quite skeptical. While we were awaiting this opening, other places like The Painted Lady and BQM opened and set themselves in as neighbourhood fixtures.
What is even more astounding is that the most recent blog post on the Toronto Life blog is on May 1st proclaiming that they were “almost” there. Shouldn’t we be kept more up to date than that?
In any case, here’s the info for the place:Union Restaurant 72 Ossington Street 416.850.0093
The website, according to YDF, who seems to be ‘in the know’ is www.union72.ca, but it doesn’t seem to be operational as yet. UPDATE: The website is up and running.
We’re now looking forward to The Saint (another upcoming restaurant hyped by Toronto life, but not open) and Salt, both who seem to be on the verge of opening, but have been on the verge for months.
