Sorrel restaurant is opening a sister space next door. The owners recently leased the space and are working on renovations with a plan to officially open by March 2023.
A mainstay in the Rosedale neighbourhood, Sorrel is known for their casual yet elegant French Mediterranean- inspired menu accompanied by an extensive wine list, and boasts the distinction of being included in OpenTable’s Top 100 Restaurant from 2016 to 2020. And now, the award-winning neighbourhood gem known for its casual-yet-elegant dining experience is expanding.
While not a ton of details have been finalized quite yet, Sarah Pearson, Sorrel partner, general manager and sommelier has confirmed that the new space will work with the same team currently backing Sorrel, including executive chef/owner Faro Chiniforoush and chef du cuisine Jacob Chowdhury. Both chefs bring a wealth of industry experience with resumes that boast Windsor Arms Hotel, Prego Della Piazza, Esco Pazo and Rosewater.
“We have needed extra seating for some time now so when the space became available we took it,”
While the new restaurant’s menu is still being finalized, the plan is to offer up a variety of small plates.
“We do have a sense that we would like the space to be more casual, no reservations, a place to start or finish an evening,” says Sarah.
The seating capacity has room for just 28 patrons, so the spot will most likely be an intimate, cozy space perfect for small group outings or a romantic date night.
Keep an eye on Sorrel’s Instagram page for details as they become available and for now, swing by the 1158
Yonge St. spot to get a sneak peek on the renovations next door and enjoy some fan favourite seafood dishes,
pastas and fresh oysters at Sorrel while we wait for the new space to officially open in March of next year.
