The house that became the Senator Restaurant


by LEE FANCY
-


Tracing back to the very first property survey that was prepared by the Town of York in 1836, you'd be surprised to find a building that is still here and one of TO's best eats. This is the origin of the Senator Restaurant, the oldest Toronto restaurant in continuous operation at the same location.

Robert Angeloff, a Macedonian entrepreneur, converted the home to the Busy Bee Diner in 1929 and ran it until he sold it in 1938. They later sold to the "B" to George Nicolau; a cook with a grand vision. In 1948 George Nicolau took over the location and renovated the second floor and renamed his two story building the SenatorGeorge retired in 1962 but the Senator continued to be operated by his family.

Saved and renovated in 1984 by Bobby Sniderman, the Senator has evolved to become a dining landmark synonymous with the city of Toronto This beloved restaurant has served generations of Torontonians and visitors alike for over 88 year of continuous operation.

The Senator began as a home and will forever remain one of our most iconic buildings.


If you love history and being taken back to the look and feel of a 1950's dinner, you've got to check this place out.  Also, order the chicken club sandwich, its more chicken then bread and wow, great meal.
