Notable Now Toronto: December 6, 2013

Just Opened: P&L Burger
Hot off the heels of their CMT Burger Wars win for favourite patty in Toronto, Parts & Labour has just opened up a satellite burger shop aptly named P & L Burger, found at 507 Queen Street West. The new joint serves up seven wonderfully greasy and delicious burgers, like the famed P & L Burger and the spicy The Italian.

Just Opened: The Dock Ellis
Opening just a couple weeks ago near Dundas and Dovercourt (at 1280 Dundas Street West to be exact), The Dock Ellis is a sports bar for people who aren’t typically into sports bars. Makes sense since it’s located in hipster haven. Sophisticated bar snacks are on the menu, like nachos topped with brisket and uber-tasty milk buns.

Just Opened: Fonda Lola
At 942 Queen Street West you’ll now find Fonda Lola, a permanent spot for the pop-up turned restaurant. Yes… it’s Mexican (guess we won’t be seeing that trend dying down anytime soon), but Fonda Lola’s tacos are tried-and-true foodie favourites, so you’re in for some crazy good eats alongside crafty tequila-based cocktails.

Just Opened: Sandoozles
While the smokehouse trend was so 2012, Sandoozles Smokehouse & Pub seeks to reignite your love of the Southern twang. This resto, found at 709 Mount Pleasant Road, has a sandwich-focused menu of tasty eats. Evidently the cocktail list will be created by Tequila Tromba’s Eric Brass, and the dishes are certainly in the league of “cheap eats.”

25th Annual Matzoball
The Annual Matzoball party is back, going down on Dec. 24 at 6 Degrees (2335 Yonge Street). This massive Jewish-centric shindig will see Toronto’s top DJs spinning mad like a dreidel as hundreds of hip and happening twentysomethings bump and grind the night away. Brought to us by The Jewish National Fund, Magen Boys Entertainment, and ZT Events, this is one event you don’t want to miss.

Just Opened: Boots and Bourbon Saloon
From the genius behind Rock Lobster Food Co. comes new East End country bar Boots & Bourbon Saloon, found at 725 Queen Street East. The new restaurant/bar/country jamboree boasts cocktails aplenty, comfort food, line dancing lessons, and live music – the latter of which will be a heavy draw for the cool space.
