Vinny's Panini on Dupont is no more.
@ 787 Dupont street, the replacement is Casamiento . "Pupusas + Tacos + Quesadillas + Cerveza".
No website, but their new facebook page is: https://www.facebook.com/casamientoronto/

It's more refined than your Chinese or Korean run places. The lunch sushi/sashimi are really good deals for the quality!

I hope they're able to stick around as before covid19, they did mostly tasting menus

Damn, I gotta try that place! The menu and pricing are like Zen was when it was still in that ratty strip plaza (yeah, next to the strip bar) in Scarborough. Since they moved up to Markham they priced themselves out of my regular rotation...
Zen has some real competition now! Thanks for the recommendation!
Friendly reminder #1: The Golden Arches fast food chain is McDonald's, not MacDonald's. Thank you for your attention.
Friendly reminder #2: Price matching is NOT the law. Never was, never will be. Nobody can stop you from shopping elsewhere.

Vinny's made really good veal & steak sandwiches. Probably the best $10 steak sandwich I ever had

It's sad that he had to close or sell the business because I agree with you 100%.

A sign is up for the new placed called Spicy Celery but the windows are still covered up so might be a while yet.

Not all that exciting but another Popeyes opened up. This time across the street from Toronto Western Hospital. Took over location from a Vietnamese place that was there for the longest time. The Wing Machine location in the hospital should be worried.

Poutinerie is no more @ Bathurst & Bloor.
Looks like yet another fried chicken place will be opening up soon in it's place.
"Coming soon Knock out chicken".

That's not all that far from the FRY chicken, Popeye's chicken and a few other chicken places in the area. It will be interesting to see if they last.
(or if they climb on board to make yet another "amazing" chicken sandwich, lol)

Further down the street, (On Bloor, toward Spadina) it looks like Jerk King is about to have competition!
Scottybons Caribbean Grill is moving in (opening soon) with this claim in their window: "Best Jerk Chicken in the City".
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

I wonder where they put all those pool tables? lol (maybe sold them all, or threw them into storage for a future location?)
There is a crack in the locked doors where one can peek inside. Looks like they literally gutted the place and are starting from scratch.
The place is soon going to have fresh new coat of paint. (one can see the place looks like it barely has fresh new primer on the walls)

So the "real" Hong Kong dessert chain has opened up shop in Markham in the old Frenchie's location beside old future shop at Warden/7

I'm interested to try their mango pillow and how it compares to full house desserts
