Paris Paris reaches beyond French capital

Chef Jonathan Poon (Superpoint Pizza, Bar Fancy) has opened Paris Paris at 1161 Dundas St. W., with an eclectic menu that ranges far beyond France’s capital. Prices on the lunch menu range from $ 6 to $ 18 for a roasted half chicken with piri piri sauce. At dinner, princes range from $ 5 to $ 26 for a 10-ounce dry-aged striploin with peppercorn sauce. Open daily, noon to 2 a.m.

  • It may be called Gin Mill, but the new 2202 Bloor St. W. restaurant is all about craft beer. Since taking over the space that was The Yellow Griffin pub, co-owner Brandon Rennie (ex-Bandit Brewery) and his partners are offering two dozen rotating Ontario selections and upcoming custom collaborations. The menu offers beer-brined chicken wings ($ 13), stout-stewed venison ($ 22) and gin-and-tonic lemon tart ($ 8). Open daily, noon to midnight.
  • Jonathan Viau (ex-Pure Spirits Oyster House & Grill) is the new executive chef de cuisine of The Carbon Bar, 99 Queen St. E. On March 27, the Pappy Van Winkle bourbon dinner is $ 135 for five courses, including “boozy bird with hasselback potato” and bourbon banoffee pie.
  • Italian chain Dal Moro’s Fresh Pasta To Go has opened at 605 Yonge St. Serving seven pasta shapes and 12 sauces from $ 8 to $ 12. Choices include aglio olio pepperoncino and nero di seppia. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
