Lynn Crawford’s new Riverdale restaurant to open in March
Celebrity chef and Restaurant Makeover star Lynn Crawford’s much-anticipated Riverdale restaurant, located in The Citizen’s former space, is set to open in March after its renovation is complete. The name, Ruby Watchco, comes from a 13-foot sign co-owners Cherie Stinson (a Restaurant Makeover interior designer) and husband Joey Skeir found at the Junction decor shop Cornerstone a few years ago. They immediately knew that the odd moniker would be the name of their dream restaurant.
As speculated, former Truffles chef Lora Kirk will join Crawford in the kitchen, creating an ever-changing menu that revolves around seasonal, local food that showcases Ontario growers.
