When Bar Salumi’s website and phone number went dead not too long ago, we decided to find out what was up. It seems that Parkdale’s Italian aperitivo hot spot was put up for sale last month, and then was quickly snatched up by one of Bar Salumi’s chefs, Haeyoen An, who plans to open a lunch spot in the former Italian cinq à sept venue.
Bar Salumi co-owner Michael Sangregorio told us that he and his partner, Fabio Bondi, are planning to focus on their neighbouring business, Local Kitchen and Wine Bar. The long-term plan is to eventually open another Local. Where? They’re not sure yet, or at least they’re not telling.
