TORONTO — A few months after the announcement of the closure of Rose and Sons and Big Crow, Anthony Rose and his team have opened a new restaurant where the old ones once stood on Dupont Street.
The new restaurant is called The Grand Elvis, and with the new name comes a total revamp of the space. The large chalkboard and wooden booths are gone and have been replaced by black walls and plush seating.
In the space at the rear of the building — the former home of Big Crow — there is overflow seating to compensate for the front of house’s tight quarters.
The menu boasts large appetizers such as Griddled Mac & Cheese ($15), ricotta dumplings ($16) and mains such as beef stew ($27), buttermilk-fried half chicken ($25) and the Banquet Burger ($21).
The restaurant is also fully licensed and serves signature cocktails such as the Pear Sage Bellini ($14) and the Emma Goldman ($15).
