John Chetti, co-owner of Leslieville’s Queen Margherita Pizza, has found a west end spot without easy access to Neapolitan pies—and it’s an absence he plans to address when he opens a second QMP restaurant there in October. The new location will be at 785 Annette Street, just east of Jane, and will largely echo its sister location: a high-ceilinged vintage space—a former bank in this case—seating 100-ish people, serving up traditional Neapolitan pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven. Chetti tells us he sees parallels between Baby Point and Leslieville, both up-and-coming neighbourhoods in need of a good restaurant or two. He’s also apparently working on bringing in a chef he describes as “a huge name in the industry”—which will surely set off the next round of thin-crust wars in Toronto. After all, Pizzeria Libretto made a mirror-image west-to-east move last fall.
