New Restaurant Where Dorado Used To Be

Does anyone know what restaurant is going in where Dorado used to be?

  • Boo on breakfast joint. Not that I don't love a good breakfast, but would be much more excited about a place that serves dinner.

  • Helen Sobel Neighbor, Bowmanville & Realtor, Baird & Warner

    I saw and talked to the owner last week as I was walking by. Nice guy. Said it will be a breakfast/lunch restaurant closing at/around 3:00pm (which I like as I live right around there), and then he's working on introducing "pop up" dinners of some sort. Still working on the details, but apparently along the lines of some stuff that is done in NY. So you could have some pretty cool dinner options there.

Kitten found today

Kitten found black and white about 1 month old on Western near Carmen. Miracle did not get hit by cars. Please respond to this, if you are missing

  • Miracle is indeed a doll and is very lucky to have such a great new owner to love and take care of .

    I will love watching her mature into a beautiful Cat.

  • Preeti Ravenswood Superstar since 2003

    Miracle is beautiful! It took months for my resident cats to adjust to my rescue kitty. They never fought, just some hissing and then running away. It took time but they are pals now. Introduce Miracle slowly. Thank you for giving her a forever home!
