25 May Fring’s
The collaboration between Drake and chef Susur Lee surprised the entire city when it had an opening party in September — and no one was aware of its existence. Now that the upscale eatery is officially open in its King West location, and one of the biggest entertainers in the world is involved, not to mention one of the most renowned chefs, you can expect the bookings to fill up fast.
Like Lee’s other establishments, Brenda Bent (Lee’s wife and mother to the Bent-Lees) and her design partner Karen Gable are behind the decor of Fring’s, which has a hip lounge-like feel mixed with elements of whimsy (Yeti-like fur on the backs of dining chairs, installations over the bar made from clear plastic hangers) and gothic chic (ornate crosses on the walls).
It’s unclear as to how involved the 6 God actually is in this operation (I’m told he didn’t have input in terms of the drinks or the menu – he’s a fan of the prawns though), but there are subtle hints of him when I head down to the washrooms, which are labelled “6 Gods” and “6 Goddesses,” and spot the lit-up ” emojis just begging to be Instagrammed.
