A famous restaurant in Yorkville that was destroyed by a major fire on Christmas Day a year ago will soon be re-opening at new location within the area.
The owner says Spuntini Ristorante will now be located at 138 Avenue Road near Davenport Road.
At least 20 fire trucks and 80 firefighters were on scene of the three-alarm blaze that brought the old building at 116 Avenue Road down for good.
The restaurant is a popular choice among many celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Edward Norton, Jimmy Page, Elton John and U2’s The Edge, who have all been spotted there.
According to the owner, the new location will still have to go through with renovations. Peter Catarino says that he will likely give Spuntini a new name when it opens in February,
The blaze back on December 25th, 2014 also destroyed neighbouring restaurant Sotto Sotto, which was a favourite spot for Toronto hip-hop superstar Drake.
