‘Restaurant Takeover’ takes over Danforth’s Golden Pizza

A keen DECA Board Member (okay fine, it was me) was strolling along the Danforth today and noticed some TV-types taping black plastic over the windows of Golden Pizza, near Danforth and Oak Park Avenues . The sign in the window said “Closed for Restaurant Takeover”.  So I did what anyone would do – I took a picture!

Click here for Huffington Post’s article about this new show, Restaurant Takeover, and you will get a sense of what our neighbourhood is in for.  It sounds like by next week, we might have a new Danforth Gem on our hands!  Stay tuned.

  1. This place already had fantastic food at unbeatable prices, not to mention the sweet people who run it. Hope this ‘takeover’ will give it the profile it deserves!

  2. Victoria, I agree. They do a good job with the food, and the staff is VERY friendly. I’ve been there a handful of times in the last 2-3 months and they know my name, and my son’s name. I really want them to succeed!

    The place needed a refresh and I hope the designer does a good job. Now all we have to do is get rid of the scummy bars in the area, and have some other restos who want to do more than sell cheap Labatt Blue.

    Sheri, thanks for sharing this!

  3. I ADORE their greek pizza! I sure hope they don’t change a thing about the pizzas! And the staff are lovely! I hope its just a decor change!

    – spot on, Mark

  5. No we don’t know. The place seemed closed for a while and then appeared to re-open as it was before. If anyone gets the scoop, please let us know!

  6. I love Golden Pizza and have been going there all my life..The owners are friends of mine and I’m happy for their success..However, I dont agree with your comment about the “Scummy Bars” in the area..If you dont like cheap labbat blue, keep going to Golden and leave the other bars alone, as they are not going anywhere!

  7. I loved going to golden pizza when I lived in Toronto, infact went there just before we moved to Halifax in june 2012, that place is a very special place in my heart.
