Could this be the location for a new upscale grocery store by Lynn Crawford?

Rumours have been swirling among Riverside dwellers and foodies alike that Lynn Crawford is preparing to jump into the boutique grocery business. The hoarding is up over the glass at the former home of Ring Audio, just a few doors down from her Riverside restaurant, Ruby Watchco. But when we called her, the chef and host of Pitching In was keeping mum on the details—at least, she says, “until I have my ducks all lined up in a row.”

Indeed, Crawford confessed to some confusion over the interest in the place. “I don’t get it. I find it amazing, all this interest in something I’m doing.” We’re certainly not the only ones interested in what she’s up to. In yesterday’s National Post, Shinan Govani let on that he was “tickled and more than a little emboldened” by a recent interview she gave to More magazine, where she hit back at critics of the one-menu-per-night concept at Ruby Watchco. With her restaurant pedigree and her many television appearances, we doubt this is the last time Crawford will be drawing attention. We’ll certainly be watching the storefront.
