In the great British gastropub wave of 2012, The Bristol Yard stood out as one of the best—especially at brunch on weekends, when cozy Cumberland sausages and egg-stuffed breakfast pies were a welcome change from standard eggs benny. Now the Christie Pits pub is closing. “We loved this location and we loved being in the community here,” owner Davy Love wrote on the restaurant Facebook page. “Unfortunately we just outgrew this spot and are now planning something much bigger with a few added ‘twists’ in another area of Toronto.” According to Now, that “something much bigger” is a new restaurant called Bristol and Bombay, a pub and curry house with the same brunch menu as the original Christie spot, plus a lineup of spicy vindaloos and other authentic Indian curries (the location is still unconfirmed). Love’s timeline definitely seems ambitious: he serves his final brunch at the Yard on May 4 and plans to welcome people to his new digs in time for the World Cup on June 12.
