The building that Hudson Kitchen left just over one month ago didn’t sit vacant for very long: chef Brad Moore of School Restaurant is taking over the Dundas West and Palmerston corner—which, in the past five years, has also been home to the Palmerston Café and Jamie Kennedy’s Provenance—to open an all-hours barbecue joint. Old School (not, as you might have guessed, New School) will be open 24/7 for those early-morning and late-night meat cravings. Moore, along with chef Ian Kapitan, will serve comfort food, like pulled pork–topped pancakes and banana splits, but customers will also be able to get their goods to go: take-out will be available, and syrups, sauces, pies and meat by the pound will be for sale from the spot’s “general store.” And fans of moonshine (an as-yet untapped liquor trend) will be happy to know that the licensed space will host occasional “hooch tastings.” Old School is set to be in session this March.
