Wahlburgers, a fledgling burger chain from brothers Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg, is bringing tater tots, triple-patty burgers and something called Wahl sauce to a new space at the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel in early 2014. The original Massachusetts restaurant, which opened in 2011, made headlines last year for a mismanagement lawsuit, a drunk driving charge against the company’s CEO and a yet-to-air reality series about life behind the grill. Toronto banker Michael Wekerle was an early investor in the restaurant and a key player in setting up the Canadian expansion. Mark Wahlberg has a longstanding affection for Toronto: the former Funky Buncher bought a $12 million Yorkville penthouse two years ago and credits the city with saving his life on 9/11. All three brothers will be in town on September 9th for a Wahlburgers launch party at the Soho Met. [National Post]
