There were rumours of Mark Wahlberg (yes, that Mark Wahlberg) opening up a restaurant in Toronto last year and guess what? Wahlburgers will be celebrating with an announcement of it’s first Canadian location on Monday, September 9th with a “green carpet” event at the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel.
Brothers Paul, Mark, and Donnie (yes, THAT Donnie Wahlberg) will all be in attendance with family and friends at the event. “My brothers and I are thrilled to announce the opening of our Canadian location at the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel,” said Paul Wahlberg, Executive Chef of Wahlburgers.”Having spent a lot of time in the city, we have a strong connection to Toronto and appreciate the vibrant food culture. The Toronto Wahlburgers location will help build on that by using local purveyors to bring our menu to life.”
The original Wahlburgers opened October 2011 in Hingham, Massachusetts offering a family-friendly dining experience and sports bar offering quick service and seated dining. Like the U.S. locations, the new Canadian post will offer freshly made-to-order burgers as the main focus but will also include a variety of sandwiches and salads. You’ll also find childhood favourites like mom’s macaroni salad, sweet potato tots, fresh cut fries and onion rings, along with ice cream frappes and adult frappes. (UM…YUM!!)
- Donnie’s Choice: “The BBQ Bacon Burger” topped with white cheddar cheese, bacon and avocado, finished with jalapenos and a house-made BBQ sauce.
- Mark’s Choice: “The Thanksgiving Burger” made with fresh ground and seasoned turkey dressed with Paul’s orange cranberry sauce, homemade roasted butternut squash and stuffing.
- Paul’s Choice: The Wahlburgers original “Our Burger” made fresh to order with the restaurant’s special blend of beef topped with government cheese (American cheese), dill pickles, lettuce, tomato, onion and finished with the signature Wahl sauce.
