After losing its digs at Queen and Spadina to a condo developer, Come and Get It (676 Queen West, at Euclid, 647-344-3416, comeandgetit.ca, @ComeAndGetIt416) has resurfaced a couple of blocks west in the one-time Mavrik wine bar. Owner Jon Polubiec promises a familiar multiculti card of snackables – Hawaiian-style pork belly poutine, fried chicken ‘n’ apple wraps – and greatly extended late-night hours.

The ever-peripatetic J.P. Challet – Auberge du Pommier, Bouchon, the Fifth – has announced that he’ll be moving his popular if tiny Ici Bistro (538 Manning, at Harbord, 416-536-0079, jpco.ca, @jpco_ici) into Yorkville’s swanky Windsor Arms Hotel come May. He’s also launching his east-side bakery in the sorely under-used Queen Live Market at Queen and John.

Famed for its waffle-battered bacon, Lansdowne brunch spot Starving Artist has launched a second location on the Corso Italia (1078 St. Clair West, at Lauder, 416-901-7479, starvingartistbar.com, @starving4waffle).

While the all-flapjack menu remains, the much larger space means shorter lineups, especially on the weekend.
