Bruce Woods resigns as chef at Modus

Outside Sam Genkov’s new Italian restaurant on King Street

Last year, Modus Ristorante launched at King and York, and its refined Italian cuisine quickly earned it a reputation as a Bay Street power spot. Bruce Woods, the chef who helped propel the restaurant to number eight on our list of the city’s best new restaurants, has now resigned. “I approached Modus as a partnership,” Woods told us in an email, “yet at the end of the day I was not an acting partner.” The chef, who previously helmed the kitchens at Centro and Brassaii, is now scouting for a space for his own restaurant, which, like Modus, will serve Italian cuisine in a clean and modern room. But don’t expect Woods to decamp to the Dundas West, Ossington or College strips, like so many chef-restaurateurs. He says: “The location and concept will be designed with my current clientele in mind.”
