A peek inside the construction of Salad King’s new digs

Just days after a six-alarm blaze tore through the remains of Salad King’s old Gould Street home, we visit the restaurant’s new site, located across the street in the historic Thornton-Smith Building, directly above Foot Locker. Although the grand reopening of the Ryerson cheap eats staple is still weeks away, this is a taste of what to expect from the new 4,600-square-foot space, designed by Munge Leung—the same team responsible for the old location’s signature stainless steel decor. Some highlights: a bigger, faster kitchen, unisex washrooms and new booths in addition to the old Salad King’s communal tables. Click here to see the construction pictures »
