TORONTO — Alvin Leung, MasterChef Canada judge and Michelin-starred chef, is teaming up with Eric Chong, MasterChef Canada winner, to open a Toronto restaurant, reports the Toronto Star.
“I’m very excited about this. It will be Eric’s food and my food together. It will be Asian- and Chinese-inspired,” Leung told the Star of the new restaurant, which will be named R&D (Rebel and Demon).
Chong, won the Master Chef title earlier this year with his Asian-inspired lobster pappardelle.
R&D, which will be located near Toronto’s Chinatown on Spadina Avenue, is set to open in early 2015. [torontostar.com]
