The rebranding – including new signage and promotional materials – won’t take place until spring 2014, the company said Tuesday.

The Senator Restaurant has partnered with Hurrier

The Senator is Toronto’s oldest restaurant, dating back to the 19th century when it was just a house at 249 Victoria. Since then, the Senator became a Toronto landmark under the guidance of Bobby Sniderman. Bobby purchased the Senator in 1984 after a successful run at Sam the Record Man. The Senator has always focused on the highest quality ingredients like Cumbrae’s Farms Beef, organic milk from Sheldon Creek Dairy, fresh-squeezed orange juice, home-made stocks, sauces, and batters, and a commitment to only use organic wherever possible. The Senator is entering the digital age with an expanded social presence and a whole new look. Learn more about the Senator at: thesenator.com, Facebook, Twitter, and more.
