TORONTO — Celebrity brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg have announced they will be expanding Wahlburgers, their Hingham, Mass.-based burger restaurant business, to Toronto early next year.
“My brothers and I are thrilled to announce the opening of our Canadian location at the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel,” said Paul Wahlberg, executive chef of Wahlburgers. “Having spent a lot of time in the city, we have a strong connection to Toronto and appreciate the vibrant food culture. The Toronto Wahlburgers location will help build on that by using local purveyors to bring our menu to life.”
The restaurant will feature a sports bar, dining area and take-out counter, offering fresh made-to-order burgers using locally sourced and house-made ingredients. Feature items include the BBQ Bacon Burger, topped with cheddar cheese, bacon and avocado, jalapeños and house-made barbecue sauce and the Thanksgiving Burger, made with fresh ground turkey, dressed with orange cranberry sauce, homemade roasted butternut squash and stuffing.
The brothers will be in Toronto in early September to celebrate the opening during a “green-carpet” event that will coincide with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
