Toronto Will Crack Down On Adamson Barbecue When It Opens For Indoor Dining Today

The City is ready to take "enforcement action" if necessary.

After drawing attention for its plans to reopen for indoor dining amid Toronto's lockdown, Etobicoke's Adamson Barbecue is on the City's radar.

Adam Skelly, owner of Adamson Barbecue, posted an Instagram video on Monday, revealing his plan to host patrons indoors on Tuesday.

The City told Narcity in a statement that they are aware of this and ready to act if necessary.

"Should any business that is prohibited to open does so, it will be investigated and appropriate enforcement action will be taken," the statement continued.

Etobicoke falls under Toronto's jurisdiction, meaning it is currently in the grey lockdown zone.

Regions in lockdown are permitted to open for takeout and delivery only.

A livestream of the opening shows lines of people waiting to eat and media gathering to document the event.

Toronto has seen its fair share of bars and restaurants defying these rules, though.

Three Toronto restaurants were forced to close within a one-month period for failing to comply with health and safety guidelines.
