Name: Wahlburgers Contact Info: 46 Blue Jays Way, 416-489-8922, wahlburgers.ca, @WahlburgersCA
Neighbourhood: Entertainment District Owners: The Wahlberg brothers (Mark, Donnie and Paul), Starwood Group president Bruce Greenbeerg, Metropolitan Hotels president Henry Wu and Difference Capital executive chairman Michael Wekerle. Chefs: Executive chef Paul Wahlberg and head chef Vincent Leung, who’s also the chef de cuisine at Luckee next door

The Food: Beef and turkey patties are grilled-to-order and piled high with veggies, bacon strips and condiments (including chef Paul’s secret-recipe “Wahl sauce,” which is pretty similar to Thousand Island.) Non-burger options include hot dogs, salads, grilled cheeses and a seared-chicken sandwich named after Donnie’s wife Jenny McCarthy.

The Drinks: Wine, beer and “Wahlcoctions” (i.e. cocktails). The Wahlbrewski North IPA was brewed for the restaurant by Mill St. Brewery.

The Place: The restaurant is covered in branded murals and flat-screen TVs, some of which play episodes of Wahlbergers (the chain’s behind-the-scenes TV series) on a loop. The two-storey space is divided into several sections, including a full-service dining area, a sports bar and a casual grab-and-go counter.
