Shame about Mongolian Grill. Makes me regret not eating there last year pre-Covid.

I wonder if the landlord will look to developing the site now that their tenant is closing.

A couple of updates for the Atrium:
Popeyes is now confirmed to be opening in the concourse Food Court, in the location that was previously occupied by a Tim Horton's Express (not the full Tim Horton's that is on the opposite side of the building).
A restaurant called Moon Garden (粵園) will be replacing the former Spring Rolls on both levels. I'm not sure if it will be full-on Cantonese Chinese cuisine, or an Asian Fusion place like before.

I wish it were Lichee Garden again...

Adamson Barbecue has opened a 3rd location at 7 Queen Elizabeth Blvd, Etobicoke (former Habitat for Humanity Restore).
Thursday - Sunday lunch only for now.

The name doesn't sound fusion - it's what Canto-Chinese restaurants would call themselves. I felt the market is a tad risky for that.

The burger scene continues to be doing well during these times. Burger Drops (Drop Shop), which used to be a pop-up, will be opening up a permanent location at 116 Atlantic Ave (south of King West) on Sept 18.

Slight correction on my part - the restaurant name is Moon Palace, not Garden. The hoarding is saying "Authentic Cantonese Cuisine - Dim Sum - Cantonese Stir-Fry - Seafood". I'm a lot more excited about it now, as it's not another Spring Rolls "Asian Fusion" re-tread. I'm all up for a proper Canto restaurant option in the Yonge/Dundas area.

Don Alfonso 1890 have reopened as a temporary pop-up restaurant inside the Casa Loma, and will be there until they find a permanent location.

Interesting that simplified Chinese script is used.

Morning Glory @ King and Gilead has closed; too bad, it was a nice place.
I saw the positive press about it; tried it once w/friends. Didn't meet w/high approval.

Our impression was cramped, hardly room to eat w/4 of us.

Also the salad came with a very sweet dressing and the salad wasn't tossed in it.

There were some other culinary fumbles.

Still sad to see a business go.
