There's a restaurant across from my office that I've been watching being reno'd for months now. I can see the work out the window from my desk. It's called Deer Garden at 7 & Leslie.
Given the amount of work they've been putting into the reno, I was expecting something huge out of it. They've literally gutted two entire floors and rebuilt everything from scratch. It's taken at least 6 months. I don't even want to think of the cost.
But I just looked at their menu (as much as I could read): deergarden.ca
I dunno-- it looks a bit underwhelming. Basic sandwich, some noodle soups like spaghetti and "instant noodle". Nothing that you can't get in spades (and cheaper) in a hundred other smaller places from Times Square to First Markham-- and that's just Highway 7!
Has anyone gone into this place yet? Maybe it's a hidden gem with some really awesome food that warrants a 6 month down-to-the-concrete reno?
