But I can announce that you will soon have an option to bring your German children to dine downtown in the form of the Beer Markt, as the old Queue de Cheval at Drummond and Dorchester will soon be rechristened.
I don't actually know if it's going to be truly as German-themed as the name suggests but heck it's planned to be cheaper than the old restaurant, whose name is being taken elsewhere by one of the partners.
In other downtown development news, the massive Selfridges/Ogilvy's/ Hotel de la Montagne project, I am told, isn't exactly steaming along and some have suggested that it might not simply go ahead. One rumour has it that the owner of Thursdays has repurchased his bar and plans to renovate and reopen soon. We really need to get our rooftop terrace and its glorious swimming pool back, don't we?
Any other solid info would be appreciated.
