Last fall, Charles Khabouth (La Société, Cube) and Hanif Harji (ex-Kultura, Nyood) promised to combine their restaurateuring powers and start up a new culinary venture or three. One place, Storys, housed in the four-level complex on Duncan Street which hosted Grey Goose Soho House during TIFF, is something of a blank slate at the moment, but will eventually include a restaurant and cocktail bar, along with copious event space. For the next three days, however, Khabouth and Harji, along with chef Stuart Cameron, are hosting a three-day pop-up in the building, where they’ll be serving “an exquisite selection of innovative dishes that expand on Spain’s uncomplicated approach to fresh, seasonal, savoury food.” The tapas menu will include jamón ibérico, and there will be plenty of wine and cocktails as well. Seating is first-come, first-served, and we’d expect lineups. The pair’s other new ventures—Spanish restaurant Patria and “modern saloon” Weslodge, both on King West—are slated to open this summer. [Storysbuilding.com]
