More restaurants are opening up in Toronto and that means more spots to explore and enjoy this summer in the city.

Rooftop experiences, authentic cuisine, and new bars! There’s a lot in store for Toronto and we simply can’t wait to check them out.

If you’re in need of a new “go-to” spot, then look no further: here’s what’s on the come-up for Toronto’s restaurant scene.

Il Padrino

Though things have been kept under wraps for quite some time, Il Padrino is a new Italian restaurant set to open in Toronto. It plans to offer authentic cuisine that no other Italian restaurant has yet to serve, according to the restaurant’s owner. They plan on opening soon so keep a close eye out for any news via its social media accounts.

Canadian restaurant chain Earls has announced it will continue to expand across Toronto with two new locations in the downtown area. Earls King West will be located in the area of King and Portland, taking over the Lee by Susur Lee restaurant space. It’s slated to open in Fall 2023. Its next opening will be in the Manulife Centre in early 2024. However, these aren’t the only openings coming to Toronto.

Mezcalero is a new bar and tapas restaurant that has yet to open in the Annex. Its grand opening day was set for May 5 however its website has remained dormant and there’s been no sign of life on its Instagram in the past few weeks. Fingers crossed it opens up soon.

The chain made a subtle hint at its new location in an Instagram post where it announced it’ll be switching over to a new account that will house all its future restaurants. Those familiar with the King Street location know that besides the mouthwatering mains and zesty guacamole, there are Happy Hour specials that offer half-priced tacos and $6 margaritas.

Expect the same great stuff at their new location set to open soon.

Address: TBA – Don Mills area
