Between club king Charles Khabouth opening his swish steak house NAO, Rob Gentile launching his seafood-focused Buca, and The Chase group bringing their modern Japanese restaurant Kasa Moto to the former Remy’s location, Yorkville is in the midst of a culinary makeover. Now Paramount Fine Foods, the casual Lebanese eatery and bakery with 15 restaurants throughout southern Ontario (two of them at Pearson Airport), is set to open in the old Perry’s clothiers on Bay Street next door to Pusateri’s. Yorkville residents can nibble on thoroughly affordable manakeesh, halal chicken shawarma or freshly baked baklava—a welcome addition to pricy pastas and rib-eyes.
