Guu’s Bloor Street location to open next week

UPDATE: Eye Weekly is reporting that the launch has been delayed until next week due to a problem with the restaurant’s water tank.

Pending the good graces of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, the hotly anticipated Bloor Street location of Guu may be opening as soon as this Friday. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the opening ever since we caught wind of rumblings about a potential Bloor and Spadina venture back in the summer. (Owner James Kim told us last July that the new edition of the notoriously popular izakaya-style restaurant would inhabit a former Burger King location.) Earlier today, we got a hold of Masaru Ogasawara, the chef at the Church Street location, who confirmed that Guu Number Two should be open by Friday, pending the arrival of a liquor licence (expected sometime today). Friday’s only two days away, which means the lineups will probably start about now.
