Back in the summer.
That Chef Lynn Crawford and her significant other moved next door, and all the neighbours were terrified to invite her over because they were afraid to serve her inferior food.
Well, it’s sort of coming true.
Chef Lynn Crawford has bought out The Citizen with Cheri Stinson, who she has frequently paired with on Restaurant Makeover. The Citizen isn’t quite in Leslieville, it’s the neighbourhood next door (Call it Riverside, call it Queen/Broadview, call it Lower Riverdale).
Before it was The Citizen, it was the second home of Riverside Cafe, where Signe Langford used to do such wonderful things with mussels in a wee tiny space.
Set to open next year in March, we’ll have to see if all the neighbouring restaurants panic like the neighbours did in my dream.
