Dear valued guest,

On behalf of the entire Sassafraz team, I would like to thank you for your patience during our renovation and for your patronage over the past 20 years. I am excited to tell you that our doors reopened on April 27th … softly!

What does this mean in “restaurant speak”? It means that we’re open and we’re just getting started.

We’re taking the summer to put the finishing touches on our décor and menu, as we prepare for our official opening in time for the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

I take great pleasure in inviting you to experience our SoHo-inspired décor this summer, as well as our new menu offerings, including cool summer cocktails and new flavour influences. Or join us for the Toronto Jazz Festival (June 22 – July 1) and Summerlicious (July 6 – July 22). Check our website and follow us on Facebook where we’ll be posting images of our new space in September.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition. As always, we value your feedback – listening to our guests is what this soft reopening is all about. Please reach out to any member of our team with your comments and suggestions.

We look forward to seeing you at Sassafraz!
