Rapper Drake to Open Restaurant in Hometown of Toronto

Onetime Drake is going into the restaurant business. The rapper has teamed with star chef Susur Lee to open Fring’s on Toronto’s hopping King West nightlife strip. “The two-level supper club is stylishly decorated (think reclaimed wood, plastic hanger chandeliers over the bar and a basement level that includes a private back entrance), with a DJ booth, leather and velvet banquets and even a side patio,” reports Canuck style site The Kit. No word on whether it’s available for bar mitzvahs.
