Paramount Fine Foods, a Middle Eastern franchise restaurant, will be opening soon in Niagara Falls. Based on the address, it looks like it will be taking over the space in the Fallsview Casino where the Falls and Firkin is/was.

Has anyone tried their food?

From the Toronto Star:

The thunder of the waterfall roared in his bones, but Will Gadd kept climbing.

Moments later, along with Sarah Hueniken, who followed him up, Gadd completed the first-ever ice climb of Niagara Falls, a feat that earned the champion climbers praise and attention from around the world.

“This is absolutely the highlight of my career to date … This is history from a straight-up climbers’ perspective,” Gadd, 47, told the Star in a phone interview Friday, three days after the 46-metre climb up the frozen spray on the east side of the fabled Horseshoe Falls.

“It is the most well-known and wildest and largest (by volume of water) waterfall in the world. As an ice climber, it doesn’t really get any bigger than that, you know? I’m pretty psyched on that one.”

You’ve probably seen this, but if not, this video showing Niagara Falls in winter is pretty excellent!

I know this is kind of old news, but I wanted to include it anyway…

From the Niagara Falls Review:

There’s usually a moment at every comedy roast where a joke goes too far and the audience feels a bit uncomfortable.

We’re approaching that point with this whole ‘Bring Jimmy Fallon to Niagara Falls’ thing. We get it, Fallon thinks Niagara Falls, Canada is nifty, so we’re trying to get him here. But do we have to be so mean about it?

There are now three invitational videos floating around YouTube in which Mayor Jim Diodati rolls out the red carpet for Fallon. They’re fun, harmless little things…until they turn ugly. Until we demean and insult our neighbours across the Niagara River for no reason.

From Buffalo Business First:

The Rainforest Cafe is expanding its local footprint by adding a second location — this time on the U.S. side of Niagara Falls.
Canadian Niagara Hotels, owners of the Sheraton at the Falls complex in Niagara Falls, N.Y., are bringing a Rainforest Cafe to their property. The 14,000-square-foot restaurant, which will overlook Third Street and the Seneca Niagara Casino and Resort property, is expected to open by May.
