Steak Queen Reviewed; Red Sauce's Soft Opening; and More

The Eater Toronto newsletter is one delicious piece of work you definitely want coming your way. Sign up below and never be hungry again.

1.) Etobicoke: No doubt, the biggest news of the week was Toronto mayor Rob Ford's crude rant in Steak Queen, an out-the-way greasy spoon. Eater went scrounging for scraps to find out more about the restaurant. The first official review wasn't so pretty.

2.) Financial District: Mark McEwan announced that Bymark, his ritzy downtown restaurant is getting a whole new look for its 11th birthday, celebrated last November.

3.) Little Italy: The recently shuttered Acadia on Clinton St., north of College St., is now Red Sauce, an Italian-American restaurant. After a month of solid renovations, their soft opening is scheduled for this Monday "barring no major catastrophes in the next 72 hours."

4.) Ossington: Farmers, chefs, and shoppers are getting a swanky new place to hang out. Come June, Boehmer will play host to a chef-driven farmers' market, in association with the Grey County Chef's Forum.

5.) Follow Friday: Eater Toronto launched a new series that picks one notable person on Twitter, Instagram, plus a blog, that should be followed for one reason or another. See this week's Follow Friday picks.
