Is New York chef David Chang headed to the Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto, Canada that's scheduled to open in late 2012? Earlier today Chang posted a cryptic tweet, writing "chris bosh south beach sucks...hello southern ontario > Phaneuf, Bargnani & Bautista > late late 2012ish? via westbank>shangri-la."

Update 6:50 PM: David Chang is opening two restaurants in Toronto. >>>

This follows a bulletin board posting on urbantoronto.ca from a few days ago claiming that "Shangrila has landed David Chang, a New York celebrity chef... The restaurant will be at the NE end of the complex (where the pools are) on levels 1, 2 and 3. The main hotel restaurant will be at the SE corner and along University avenue."

Toronto Chowhounders are excited (quote: "Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!") and even Canada's Globe and Mail picked up the story. We have heard Chang/Toronto rumors in the past, but so far no one's gotten definite confirmation. Yet.
