Vanessa Cervantes and Sergio Maldonado met back in 2009 while both working at Frida Restaurant. Vanessa was a server and Serge worked the line in the kitchen. Over the next couple years, the two would mature to partners in the restaurant, running both front and back of house, and then partners in life as well. Sergio would make Vanessa a single churro at the end of each night and have flowers delivered to the restaurant constantly, sweet gestures for the young sweethearts.
Sugo is the Italian word for “sauce”. More colloquially, sugo is used to describe the indelible pomodoro (tomato) sauce that constitutes the base for a multitude of Italian dishes. It’s simple, and like the namesake restaurant owned and operated by Alex Wallen, Connor Joerin and Scott Pennock (all former owners and/or employees of the neighbouring restaurant The Emerson) this new Bloordale joint is as simple as it gets.
Chef Joseph Shawana is familiar with bringing new concepts to Toronto. A partner in the Snakes and Lattes, Coq of the Walk, and L’Absinthe Bar family, his latest endeavour has a deeply personal overtone to it, as Ku-Kum Kitchen celebrates the cuisine of his indigenous heritage and that of the First Nations of Canada. “I’m not trying to tell the story of indigenous communities in Canada, or North America for that matter,” chef Shawana explains.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
