TORONTO, ON – November 30, 2021 – The new Foodie Aisle s an urban culinary experience for food lovers and it just opened at Union Station. From dim sum and roti – to tacos, fried chicken and smash burgers – Foodie Aisle offers a diverse selection of market-style cuisine from some of the city’s top local chefs.
Located below the GO Bay Concourse, Foodie Aisle opens a new direct route to Scotiabank arena and is the first phase of an extensive expansion project by Osmington Inc. in partnership with Beauleigh Retail Consultants that will see a mix of over 75 retailers and food and beverage vendors come to the country’s busiest transit hub over the next few years. The Foodie Aisle sits between what will become the new Bay Retail area, which will be home to several international brands, such as Sephora, and the Fresh Market, which will offer grocery and specialty food items.
‘Union is becoming a destination for food lovers,” says Lawrence Zucker, CEO of Osmington Inc. “Toronto is one of the best food cities in the world and visitors and residents will no longer have to choose convenience over quality when they pass through Union Station’s Foodie Aisle market-style concept of local eateries,” he says.
