Serving Montreal residents for 30 years, L’Avenue will open a new location at The Well in 2024. It’s expected to be a popular brunch spot with its eccentric plates, like truffle duck eggs benedict, “generous portions, and a boundary-pushing approach to brunch.” We can’t wait.

Back in June, we shared that the Wellington Market is also coming to The Well. It is a 70,000-square-foot hall described as Toronto’s “newest go-to location for market fresh and artisan food, culinary exploration and experiences to share.”

The new restaurants join the already announced list of vendors coming soon to the market including La Cubana, Hooky’s Fish & Chips, Ren Sushi, a new Korean-focused concept, Chun Yang Tea, Lobster Burger Bar, Rosie’s Burgers, Isabella’s Mochi Donuts, and Sweetie Pie.
