The Latest on Toronto’s Scene: August 22nd, 2011

Another day, another dollar. Well, for Notable, it's another Monday, another rundown. Here's what you need to know about TO's resto scene

Alright, it’s Monday, which means it’s time for some more restaurant news. We know…even we find it hard to keep up, but it’s our duty, so without further adieu, here’s the rundown…

IZAKAYA Japanese Restaurant recently opened on College Street. We haven’t stopped in yet (perhaps this week, we’ll see), but we’re a little confused by a sign/blown-up article in the front window that touts the head chef’s experience in Korean cuisine. Peculiar…In any case, we’ll bring you more details after we pop by, until then, good luck trying to Google for more info as the name is so, you know, unique.

Bannock’s signage (pictured above) is finally up at Queen and Bay. The new spot should be open next week unless anything goes awry. Canadian Comfort Food…we’re thinking (sorry, hoping) for beavertails with candied bacon.

We heard through the grapevine that Paul Bohmer, the restaurateur behind Boehmer on Ossington and Bohemian Gastropub on Queen West, is opening up a spot called Fuud by Bohmer next to the latter. No news yet on when it will open or the style of the menu, but we’ve sent an email in, so we’ve done our part. Speaking of Boehmer Restaurant, they’re now doing a weekly lobster boil and have just started their Harvest Menu with smaller grazing options, as well as a new roster of signature and classic cocktails, which is excellent, because nothing goes better with Fall’s dark and stormy weather than a Bermudian Dark ‘N Stormy. (No, we’re not being cute, the drink actually does make you think of summer, aight?)

And Parlour, a new club/lounge opening at 270 Adelaide Street, apparently held a pre-grand opening party on Saturday night. We’ve been told the spot is still set for a late August opening…perhaps even this weekend…
