A peek inside the construction of Salad King’s new digs

More than 40 banquette seats will flank Yonge Street, and an enclosed structure will feature booths for 32 people. Salad King’s signature cafeteria-style seats will be at the heart of the restaurant, with room for 88 diners.

Just days after a six-alarm blaze tore through the remains of Salad King’s old Gould Street home, we visit the restaurant’s new site, located across the street in the historic Thornton-Smith Building, directly above Foot Locker. Although the grand reopening of the Ryerson cheap eats staple is still weeks away, this is a taste of what to expect from the new 4,600-square-foot space, designed by Munge Leung—the same team responsible for the old location’s signature stainless steel decor. Some highlights: a bigger, faster kitchen, unisex washrooms and new booths in addition to the old Salad King’s communal tables. Click here to see the construction pictures »
