New restaurants open in Toronto pretty much on a monthly basis. Since the beginning of 2016, there have been over 50 restaurants that have debuted their delicious cuisine and spectacular venues in the city. The year has yet to come to an end and that means, there are still many fine dining restaurants, cafes, quick stops and healthy eateries making their way to Toronto.
From Italian to Asian dishes, the cultural choices are unlimited. The question is, what’s coming to Toronto this fall? Here’s a list of 9 new restaurants coming to Toronto during the year’s most colorful season:
1. Baro // 485 King St.W
The highly anticipated Latin American street food restaurant is coming to the King West neighbourhood late fall 2016. You can try the Baro food truck in the meantime to get a taste of the flavors put together by Chef Steven Gonzalez.
2. Masseria // 577 King St. W.
Masseria is an Italian fare restaurant that has traditional appetizers, pizzas, insalatas and paninis on their menu. The modern space creates a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere and will make every guest feel as if they’re at home. The new addition came to King and Portland on September 8th 2016.
3. North Poke // 179 Baldwin St.
