New restaurant coming: Lick’s

In local business news, Doug Fisher reported on his blog this week that Lick’s is coming to Parliament Street. Resident reader Sam Boult sent us this photo confirming that they are moving in to the location formerly occupied by Murgatroid.

Fast-food meat is scary.

Parliament Street has enough fast-food ‘restaurants’.

Support the House on Parliament, F’Amelia, The Peartree, Mayberry Cafe, Stout Irish Pub.

1) I am not sure it is Licks in fact – the space has a different sign now, though it’s still burger-related
2) Is Licks really fast food in the style of McDonalds, etc? By that token, are the myriad Toronto burger chains fast food (Burgers Priest, GBK, etc)?
3) Great to see another new spot in the neighbourhood!

Interesting! After your comment, I made a trip up and saw that we should now be expecting “A & Z Gourmet Burger”. I guess Lick’s is not opening any longer.

Licks wasn’t in the “gourmet” burger category as far as I could tell – I went for the Veggie Burger, the “Sky High” (french fries) and the “routine” (veggie poutine) – it was more of a 50s diner style but with lots of personality. They are/were a small chain that ran into difficulties a few years ago so I was surprised they were opening a new location (see their Wikipedia article).

You can’t say we don’t have choices in the neighbourhood!

The gravy thickens! Despite the sign on Parliament Street indicating that “A&Z Gourmet Burger” is coming, we received a photo from our friend Sam of the back of the building showing a van with the Lick’s logo and signs of renovations. Only time will tell…
