With as little media hoopla as possible, Susur Lee quietly opened his highly anticipated Luckee (328 Wellington West, at Peter, 416-935-0400, luckeerestaurant.com, @LuckeeTO) in the Soho Metropolitan Hotel on April 4. While his dinner menu features the Cantonese likes of Peking-style duck with five-spiced foie gras and crispy General Tao beef, it’s his weekend dim sum brunch that has local foodies in a lather. Even better, Luckee takes reservations, and there’s cart service!
As part of this year’s Images Festival, Frank at the AGO (317 Dundas West, at McCaul, 416-979-6688, ago.net/frank, @agotoronto) hosts a simultaneous multi-course dinner and “moving-image excavation” of the gallery’s extensive collection of works by filmmaker Andrew Lampert on Friday (April 11) from 6 to 9 pm. None other than art superstar Michael Snow provides the live avant-garde dinner music. Admission is included with the price of chef Jeff Dueck’s prix fixe or à la carte lineup.
Over at College and Palmerston, Teatro has called it quits after a 16-year run, an eternity for a once fashionable it-spot. With super-hot La Carnita and ex-Niagara Street Café’s Nick Liu’s imminent GwaiLo right next door, whoever’s taking over the spot would be a fool not to consider trendy takes on Southeast Asian street food or wacky tacos.
