You know life is boring when the most excitement you’re getting is when the local mall renovates their food court. *Someone needs to go on a date!
Actually, you really could have a date in The Eaton Centre’s new food court named the Urban Eatery. It’s pretty stylin’. After a meal at a restaurant, I went down to the lower level of the mall that previously looked really stale. I’m not sure when the last renovation was but it was definitely feeling like the early 90s in there for a while. If you want to see what I’m talking about , go to the north end of the food court.
Apparently, the new Urban Eatery cost $48 million in renovations as part of the $120 million in revitalization of the dated looking shopping centre situated in the “centre” of Toronto’s downtown . The old favourites are there: New York Fries (which is now tucked away in a corner and not conveniently near the elevator), A&W and McDonald’s, which is now closer to Dundas. It’s looking pretty slick. McFlurry anyone?
The bathrooms have also been renovated. They’re bigger, cleaner and more modern. I particularly liked the sink.
There are some new additions to the food court including Urban Herbivore (whose other location is in the not-as-accessible Kensington Market) and Fast Fresh Foods, for those who are more health conscious.
It was fun for a photo essay. The Eaton Centre’s website is here.
