TORONTO — After successfully launching Valdez on 606 King St. W. in Toronto three years ago, the team behind the restaurant is preparing to move on to a larger venue at 485 King. W.
“I guarantee the new spot will be unlike anything else in Toronto. Our goal is to create a destination that will be talked about around the world,” says managing partner, Matty Tsoumaris.
The first floor of the new four-storey restaurant will be influenced by the current Valdez aesthetic and menu; the second floor will feature a lounge with a raw bar and Escobar; the third will boast a 2,200-sq.-ft. event space; and the fourth floor will house an outdoor Terraza inspired by ‘Asado”, the legendary barbecue and rotisserie cuisine from Uruguay.
Valdez will continue to operate as usual until May 7th. The new concept has no official name as of yet, but will open late summer 2016.
