Mark Wahlberg’s restaurant Wahlburgers to expand into Canada
The Wahlberg family is busy. Wahlburgers, the burger restaurant launched by “Ted” and “2 Guns” star Mark Wahlberg and his brothers Paul and Donnie, is expanding, starting with a location in Canada.
The new restaurant, at Toronto’s SoHo Metropolitan Hotel, will open in early 2014, the company said Wednesday. The original Wahlburgers in Hingham, Mass., was founded in 2011 with Paul Wahlberg as the executive chef.
This is just the latest move for the family-run concept. The Wahlbergs have also been filming a reality TV show on the premises.
The Wahlbergs are also looking to add locations in neighborhoods in Boston and the surrounding suburban Boston area.
The menu boasts standard American burger and casual food fare, along with favorites from the Wahlbergs’ childhood, including Donnie’s pick, “The BBQ Bacon Burger,” and Mark’s, “The Thanksgiving Burger,” made with turkey.
The drinks menu features boozy “adult frappes” with names like “Funky Monkey” and “Fluffanuttahh.” Sounds perfect for Ted.
