Queen Margherita is summoning the “God of pizza ovens” for its upcoming west-end location

After catching word that Queen Margherita Pizza is set to open a second location near the Junction this fall, we got in touch with co-owner John Chetti. Apparently, he and his partners have cemented a deal with Stefano Ferrara, who Chetti refers to as the “God of pizza ovens,” to come from Naples and personally build and install a pizza oven at the new location.

He also tells us that the new venue will be built inside a former bank at 785 Annette St. (at Jane St.) and will be similar in concept to the original location.

“We still want that rustic Italian look,” Chetti says.

No word yet on menu changes or what the new location’s capacity will be.

A five-year reunion with Elle Cuisine

A five-year reunion with Elle Cuisine

Way back in 2011 we fell hard for Elle Cuisine at the Toronto Underground Market (R.I.P), then really hard after chef Lauren Mozer catered an intimate dinner for us. Back then she took us through a decadent seven-course tasting menu, wowing us with her French-influenced dishes. So when the opportunity arose to have her cater another dinner for us five years later, we couldn’t say no.
