Home to all things upscale, Yonge and Bloor will be getting a brand new gourmet grocery store within the upcoming weeks.
Celebrity chef Mark McEwan — the man behind notable restaurants like Fabbrica, ONE, and Bymark — will be opening a third location of his gourmet grocery store in the 1 Bloor Street East retail podium.
Set to open January 2019, McEwan’s Yonge and Bloor will span over 17,000-square-feet.
The massive gourmet grocery store will take up the entire concourse level and act as the anchor of the intersection. For those who have never been to a McEwan’s before, which has locations at Shops at Don Mills and in the Financial District’s PATH, the grocery store merges grocery shopping with restaurant dining.
The grocerant, as the McEwan Group calls it, will feature top-class products and elevated prepared meals, making it a high-end shopping and food destination for those who work, play, and live in the area.
McEwan’s Yonge and Bloor will host a number of exciting new features.
In addition to the gourmet grocery store’s regular features, shoppers can expect a number of new features, too. Features expected to accompany the Yonge and Bloor location include McEwan’s Cafe, Fabbrica Pizza, a carving station and rotisserie (offering prime rib, porchetta, brisket, and more), a sushi bar, a hot and cold table, a salad and sandwich station, and a dry ageing room.
Visitors will also be able to shop McEwan’s diverse cheese and deli program, daily deliveries of seafood, and market-fresh produce.
The new gourmet grocery store will be a welcome addition to Toronto’s busiest intersection.
With ample parking and plenty of seating, there’s no doubt that the grocery store will be a hit.
Bloor and Yonge is set to see many changes over the next few years. The area is rumoured to soon be home to a 20,000-square-foot Apple store, and will soon also welcome a new Over The Rainbow, an updated Birks, and Canada’s first Eataly.
