"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.
