Notable Now Toronto: October 11, 2013

Just Opened: Rhum Corner
When it was announced earlier this year that Hoof Raw Bar/Hoof Cafe would be no more, foodies were in an uproar. That was quickly quieted, however, with the announcement of a new Jen Agg-helmed spot, Rhum Corner. Inspired by her husband’s island heritage, Rhum Corner is a Haitian-style resto-bar with a small but special menu, and, of course, rum cocktails.

Just Opened: Olde Towne Oyster Bar
If you’re planning on making a trip to Lucien for dinner, you might find yourself a bit confused by the new moniker. Olde Towne Oyster Bar is the new incarnation of the restaurant, located at 36 Wellington Street West. The new spot sports a seafood-centric menu, perfect for after-work drinks and networking thanks to tapas-style dishes.

Just Opened: The Scullery
At 200 Carlton Street, you’ll now find The Scullery, a cafe/bistro hybrid that’s serving up delectable bites of bliss. The small new spot has an equally small menu of rotating dishes, ranging from soups to sandwiches to salads and mains. On the weekends, you can pop by for a tasty brunch menu with offerings like huevos rancheros and house-made scones.

DX Gala
The Design Exchange’s annual gala, Intersection, is back for 2013. On Oct. 18 at the DX (234 Bay Street), get ready to go to MARKET, this year’s theme for the event. The evening starts with a VIP Dinner Experience before the party kicks off, with a Night Market, Street Market, live music and entertainment, and more.

Cabin Grand Opening
On Oct. 19, get ready to experience a new level of Toronto nightlife. Cabin (which will be found at 559 College Street West) is set to host its grand opening, inviting you in the doors for an evening of design, music, and style. The new space is gearing up to present us with a heightened sense of the nightlife scene, a going-out 2.0, if you will. Will you…?

Operanation: A Night of Temptation
Likely the most talked-about event of the upcoming gala season in the city is Operanation. On Oct. 24 at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts (145 Queen Street West), get ready for an evening of unforgettable heights, with performances by Juno Award-winning Sam Roberts and the COC’s Ensemble Studio artists.
