Bobbie Sue’s, a mac-and-cheese spot from the owners of Poutini’s and Hawker Bar, is coming to Ossington
If there’s one thing Poutini’s House of Poutine does well, it’s (obviously) poutine, and at their newest take-out concept, Bobbie Sue’s, co-owners Nicholas and Frederic Laliberté have taken another comfort food favourite to its extreme. Scheduled to open in early October, the restaurant will serve gussied-up mac and cheese, cooked to order using ingredients prepped at the owners’ other Ossington spot, Hawker Bar. “We love the idea of making one thing and doing it well,” says manager Katie Laliberté. “If there’s one thing we learned from Poutini’s, it’s you’ve got to get the sauce right.” The team has made their traditional version of the dish using a classic béchamel base (also featured in Poutini’s New Year’s brunch poutine). The plain mac can be spiked with extras like smoked hot dogs or—you guessed it—poutine. The former Philip Sparks space, now a colourful shack, will have two levels: a main floor with a take-out window and a basement with a few tables (which will come in handy when the real mac-and-cheese weather hits).

Yummy sounding and hopefully not too pricey.
Dance Mac, a little market takeout place at Queen and John had some of the best M&C in this city. Prices were reasonable, but inevitably went up before the place folded, mainly due to the inability of the developers to actually finish and fill the marketplace building he was in (across from CItyTV). This place may last longer, but only because of the “gourmet” allure will convince people to pay top dollar for otherwise cheap-to-produce comfort food.
Thanks for the reply. Interesting to hear about Dance Mac. Too bad they didn’t find another location.
