Celebrity Chef's One-of-a-Kind Restaurant in Brampton Opening Next Week


If you’re looking for a new, healthy restaurant to grab a bite at in Brampton, you’re in luck! A very fun new resto is set to open in the heart of downtown Brampton in a matter of days. 

Well-known Brampton chef Jason Rosso - the brains behind the trendy and modern J. Red & Co - is set to open J. Red’s sister resto Fresh X-press inside Nom Nom’s Yogurt Bar + Cafe on Queen St. in the city’s downtown core on Wednesday, November 29, 2017. 

The one-of-a-kind little resto will be downtown Brampton’s only custom salad and snack bar, also serving soups.

Rosso’s new salad bar-style resto will run in conjunction with Nom Nom’s, and feature a ton of salad topping and unique ingredients.

And what can we expect from the new snack bar?

We’ll have really fun snacks,” said Rosso in anticipation of the opening. “It’s going to be primarily lunch-oriented, all fresh products. The primary business will be a custom-built salad bar with a salad artist and fresh, unique ingredients. We’ll have really cool health-focused fruits, different nuts and cool protein options. We’re known for our grab and go snacks too, [so there could be] mac ‘n’ cheese spring rolls and a really cool organic hotdog pogo with a hot Canadian mustard.”

Rosso says patrons can expect unique twists on eclectic ingredients and that diners will be able to try some interesting protein options, including agedashi-style tofu or Indonesian-style beef satays.

This is all exciting enough - but Rosso has yet another resto up his sleeve that’s going to hit the downtown core sometime in the future. 

The second restaurant, which also be coming to the downtown core (although the final location has yet to be announced), will be called Rocco’s Pizzeria and Sangwich (although Rosso says this is something of a working title).

Rocco’s is grab and go totally,” says Rosso. “It’s a New York-style gritty pizza joint with twist.”

Rocco’s will offer 12 inch, personal size pizzas with a myriad of toppings.

As for the very exciting opening of Fresh X-press this coming Wednesday, you can head over and create a salad, have some soup, try fun snacks from 11 a.m.-7:30 p.m. from Monday-Saturday!
