Confirmed this morning, after receiving a tip from our readers, is news that a Texas grill restaurant is going into the former Cafe Demetre at 660 Richmond Street. Lone Star Texas Grill is a chain of 21 restaurants located mostly within the Greater Toronto Area. Their menu is a large selection of familiar TexMex and Southern standards like fajitas, tacos and enchiladas in addition to steaks and burgers. Portions are typically large at reasonable prices.
Realtors for the former dessert cafe verified interest by the company while Cathryn Leroux, Director of Marketing for Lone Star, stated that they are definitely opening a restaurant in London by winter or early spring of 2013, but could not confirm the exact spot because negotiations are still under way. The Lone Star website lists that their London location is “coming soon” and does not list an address.
