Plant-Based Restaurant Concept ‘by CHLOE.’ Entering Canada with 2 Confirmed Locations

US-based plant-based restaurant chain by CHLOE. has secured a space in Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre, which will open this fall. A second Toronto location will open next year in Toronto’s Financial District as by CHLOE. gains a foothold in the Canadian market that could see more locations open in other markets.
....
Yorkdale’s by CHLOE. will be feature the brand’s signature dining menu as well as market specials that change with the season, grab-and-go options, and fresh-baked sweets. The menu will be 100% plant-based with gluten-free and soy-free options available. An exclusive “Toronto by CHLOE.” menu will be featured at the Yorkdale location and it will be inspired by “classic Canadian dishes and local ingredients”.

Popular meal options include the Guac Burger, Quinoa Taco Salad, and Pesto Meatball. The ‘Sweets by CHLOE.’ line will also be carried at the Yorkdale locations as well as a collection of house-made, dairy-free ice creams and sorbets called ‘Chill by CHLOE’.

The Yorkdale retail space will be “a replica of the brand's first ever flagship location in NYC's iconic West Village,” according to the company. That includes a reproduction of by CHLOE.’s Bleecker Street facade. The interior will include colourful stripped banquettes and tiled tabletops, as well as Toronto-inspired neon signage, swing chairs, and bathroom wallpapers.

Mean Bao's Leslieville location on Carlaw Ave closed on Saturday. They're relocating mid-September to 753A Queen Street E.

Yeah. I wonder if they'll be sharing the space and handling the food, like North of Brooklyn at Get Well Bar, That would be an upgrade for the bar, but the Carlaw location was extremely kid-friendly, next to Sprouts play gym and with ample stroller room.

Looks like chef Dave Mottershall's Loka Snacks, which was running out of Hi-Lo, has shut down and he's moved to Charlottetown. I suspect Mean Bao will be filling the void.

Is it not going to be next door to Hi-Lo, where the short lived Caribbean place was? Loka Snacks has been gone forever from there....

Oh yeah, you're right. It's next door.

Caribbean Sunset was pretty good, too. It was a drag when that closed.
