An as-yet-unnamed eatery from chef Anthony Rose, who left The Drake Hotel last year to open the first of three new restaurants, is the latest in the wave of smokehouses to open in Toronto in the last year. Rather than the slow-cooked southern barbecue of other recent arrivals, like Aft, Electric Mud BBQ and Marky and Sparky’s Smokehouse, Rose’s new spot is serving quick-grilled meats, including fish, chicken and sausage, plus smoked ribs and wings.  The space, which is tucked behind his elevated Annex greasy spoon Rose and Sons, will have its own kitchen and bar—housed in old shipping crates—but share cook Chris Sanderson with the diner. The new restaurant is scheduled to open in July. [The Grid]
