One-stop shop

After a series of delays, the Lakeview Storehouse (1134 Dundas West, at Ossington, 416-546-8889, thelakeviewrestaurant.ca) is set to launch Monday (May 2). Part convenience store and part late-night weekend poutinerie, the offshoot of the popular west-side resto is also open 24/7. The artfully renovated space promises everything from catnip to scouring pads alongside prepared meals to go, local fruit ’n’ veg and a short round-the-clock takeout card. Where else can you buy a head of lettuce, a box of Pocky and a cheeseburger at 4 am?

Later that week, on May 5, Dolce Gelato on College opens a second outpost on the east side in the space that housed now-defunct Kokkino Lounge (414 Danforth, at Arundel, 416-546-2148, dolcegelato.net). Back in Little Italy, Leaside’s Mad Italian Gelato Bar has moved into the old Harmony Lounge (589 College, at Clinton, 647-352-6234, themaditalian.net), while ice cream parlour the Lansdowne Cone (659 Lansdowne, at Bloor West, thelansdownecone.com) has set up business around the corner from the Bloordale Pantry.

Keeping it maternal, chef Paul Boehmer’s eponymous supper club (93 Ossington, at Argyle, 416-531-3800, boehmer.ca) introduces Sunday brunch just in time for Mother’s Day, May 8.


Duggan’s microbrewery at Victoria and Richmond has been shuttered due to a landlord dispute but continues to sell its acclaimed Number 9 IPA through the LCBO and select restaurants.
