The best new restaurants to try in Toronto right now

Jul 9 2021, 8:09 pm

There are a few new contenders in Toronto’s food scene that have recently opened restaurants across the city.

It’s been a tough year for restaurants but with Ontario heading into Step 3 next week, there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Indoor dining is making a comeback.

That means all the new restaurants that have opened in the city will be welcoming guests indoors for the very first time.

Here are a few spots that have recently opened for business:

Toronto Beach Club

The Mediterranean meets Woodbine Beach. Toronto Beach Club brings an elevated dining experience to the east end. The new restaurant encapsulates the true essence of countries like Spain, Turkey, France, Italy, and Greece, through its carefully curated menu. The club offers tapas-style cuisine, so the dishes are bigger in size and intended to be shared.

Address: 1681 Lake Shore Boulevard East
Hours: Daily from 11:30 am to late night hours

Rabbit! Rabbit! Rabbit!

Another King Street West restaurant to have recently opened is Rabbit! Rabbit! Rabbit! Its menu focuses on southwest cantina from tacos to nachos. They also have a brunch menu available.

Address: 461 King Street West
Hours: Wednesday to Friday from 3 pm to 1 am, Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 1 am
