Coming Soon: Fat Pasha, a Middle Eastern restaurant from Rose and Sons chef Anthony Rose

Fat Pasha

Anthony Rose, the chef and co-owner of Rose and Sons and Big Crow, is opening yet another restaurant on Dupont Avenue. Fat Pasha, which takes over the former Indian Rice Factory space this spring, will be just as casual and rambunctious as Rose’s other two restaurants. Instead of burgers or barbeque, though, the new spot will focus on Middle Eastern cuisine.

An as-yet-unnamed eatery from chef Anthony Rose, who left The Drake Hotel last year to open the first of three new restaurants, is the latest in the wave of smokehouses to open in Toronto in the last year. Rather than the slow-cooked southern barbecue of other recent arrivals, like Aft, Electric Mud BBQ and Marky and Sparky’s Smokehouse, Rose’s new spot is serving quick-grilled meats, including fish, chicken and sausage, plus smoked ribs and wings.  The space, which is tucked behind his elevated Annex greasy spoon Rose and Sons, will have its own kitchen and bar—housed in old shipping crates—but share cook Chris Sanderson with the diner. The new restaurant is scheduled to open in July. [The Grid]

Prep School: Chef Anthony Rose dishes on three ways to prepare nostalgia-inducing smoked whitefish

Smoked whitefish is all over the midday menu at the Summerhill diner Rose and Sons. Here, Rose talks about why he loves it, and how to make it at home

Anthony Rose | Smoked Whitefish

“At Rose and Sons, I make classic comfort food—things like patty melts, chili and fried chicken—so when I’m planning the menus, I often think back to my childhood favourites. Smoked whitefish brings to mind warm memories of Shabbat brunches with my grandfather. He was amazing: he used to buy the fish whole, then bone it, brine it and smoke it himself. Even now, I still crave it—it’s less fatty than salmon or trout, and it has a nice meaty texture. But don’t worry: you don’t have to smoke your own. Diana’s Seafood on Lawrence near Warden sells quality smoked fish.”

The Drake names its first-ever corporate executive chef

Drake Hotel New Chef

Queen West trendsetter the Drake Hotel is bringing in chef Ted Corrado to take over its kitchen. Corrado did stints at Rain, Luce and George before opening C5 Restaurant at the ROM, where he cultivated an ambitious, fussy, high-end style of cooking. At the more comfort-oriented Drake, he’ll be working alongside current head chef Darren Glew, whose work received tepid reviews after Anthony Rose left to open his buzzy new diner Rose and Sons, and overseeing the food program at The Drake Devonshire Inn, which is slated to open in Prince Edward County this summer.

The Dish Power Rankings: buzzing diners and taco insurgents

The Hoof Raw Bar steals the top spot this week, now that Jen Agg has revived the mega-popular Hoof Café brunch (see last week’s rankings). Over in Parkdale, a new southern Italian restaurant is gaining ground and in The Junction, there’s a new contender for Toronto’s top taco.

The Dish Power Rankings: brunches and bans

Toronto Life’s weekly assessment of the restaurants with the biggest buzz, the longest lineups and the toughest tables to snag.

Momofuku Shōtō loses the top spot this week to the perennially buzzy Grove (see last week’s rankings). The Black Hoof drops off the list, but is replaced by the Hoof Raw Bar, which is hosting the return of Toronto’s favourite brunch service circa 2010. Also noteworthy: a new restaurant opens in Parkdale, likely the last until the ban is lifted, and a new tasting menu from one of the city’s top Italian restaurants.

The Dish Power Rankings: feasting menus and Maple Leafs edition

Toronto Life’s weekly assessment of the restaurants with the biggest buzz, the longest lineups and the toughest tables to snag.

The biggest movement this week was lower down on the list, where over-the-top feasting meals at Catch and Dyne managed to knock off a few restaurants that weren’t quite buzzy enough (see last week’s rankings). Café Boulud took the biggest hit, slipping three places after Jared Bland took the New York superchef’s bistro to task for its lack of ambition in our February issue. Real Sports Bar and Grill makes its entry in the list thanks to the long-awaited return of the Leafs this Saturday.

Review: Rose and Sons, Anthony Rose’s diminutive new diner

176 Dupont Ave, 647-748-3287

Dinner at the minuscule new diner from Anthony Rose, the ex-chef of the Drake Hotel, is good, chaotic fun. LCD Soundsystem thrums from the speakers while Rose squeezes between the tightly packed communal booths, dropping F-bombs (“It’s impossible to fuck up a patty melt—you’re gonna love it”) and pouring wine for parka-cocooned couples waiting by the door. You can see Rose’s down-to-earth enthusiasm all over the menu of upgraded greasy spoon specials, which are deftly prepped by chef Chris Sanderson.

Introducing: Rose and Sons, the new Annex diner from Anthony Rose

Introducing: Rose and Sons

(Image: Susan Keefe)

The hotly anticipated Rose and Sons opened earlier this month where the beloved neighbourhood institution People’s Foods once stood. Co-owned by Robert Wilder and The Drake Hotel’s former executive chef Anthony Rose, the 176 Dupont Street location is the first instalment in a promised trio of restaurants. Out of respect for the diner that Wilder visited for 30-plus years, he and Rose opted to leave the iconic “Hamburgers” sign untouched. Inside, Rose and Sons echoes the retro appeal of the fallen greasy spoon, with the individual tables swapped out for long wooden booths. The eatery has an undeniably buzzy energy, with a bustling bar operating beside a semi-enclosed kitchen, which turns out the kind of elevated comfort food that Rose has become known for.
