The man who brought Locale Restaurant and a new level of dining to the four corners in King City, is in the midst of a second endeavour in Aurora. The old Johnathon's Dining Lounge building on the east side of Yonge Street, just north of the Aurora Shopping Centre, is undergoing extensive renovations. Linda and I learned of this while having an early dinner at Locale's patio, after the recent King City Craft Beer event. I don't know when the opening of the Aurora undertaking is, but one wishes great success for this talented chef and entrepreneur.
The renewal of King City continues as the old makes way for new development on King Road in the centre of the village. I recently ran some photos of Hoop Street properties stretching behind the buildings along the north side of King Road, between the King City Market and the old King City (McLeod) Bakery. This past week has seen the demolition of the two small houses between the market and old bakery. One keenly anticipates the development proposal for this large overall site, between Keele Street and the CIBC bank, backing onto the railway/GO line.
King City is destined to have an 'Italian Kitchen'
Once again King City is about to get its chance at having an 'Italian Kitchen' eatery in the middle of the village, next to Rockford's Pub on the King Road. I'm beginning to lose count of the dining spots that have come and gone here. Here's wishing the new venture every success.
