We’re a bit late in the game to announce this, but Bridgehead made another big announcement to bring a bit of sunshine to our rainy day: it was finally confirmed that it’s opening a location in Hintonburg. Many persistent rumors had Bridgehead moving into what’s currently the KFC on Wellington St. West but they’ve picked the location at Fairmont and West Wellington, formerly CUPEXXX (which moved across the street) and Vivante. The space had been empty for a while. Bridgehead hopes the shop will open in the fall of this year and that a patio will be set up along the Fairmont side of the shop.
In other Hintonburg news, we’re hearing rumors that Clive Doucet’s former campaign haunt has been rented. Our sources tell us there might just be a second Chilean eatery in the hood, with a focus on drinks. Stay tuned.
