Robert De Niro, fresh off the Tony Awards phase where he attacked the United States president, and celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa remain in Toronto today to introduce a significant new development.
The duo, along with film producer Meir Teper, are holding a midday ET news conference to promote exactly what they’re calling the “world’s first” complex to feature a Nobu dining establishment, hotel and houses.
However, movie star De Niro may get the bulk of the concerns after his big statement at Sunday night’s Tony Awards.
De Niro, a strong challenger of Donald Trump, dropped a couple of F-bombs on Monday night in New York City prior to raising his arms and motivating the crowd to enact the upcoming midterm elections.
The CBS tv audience heard dead silence instead of De Niro’s comments, The Associated Press reports.
Condominiums choosing $1.4 M.

The Toronto facility will be constructed at 15 Mercer St., near King Street West and Blue Jays way, in Toronto’s downtown core.
Condo units in the structure, which is still in the pre-construction stage, are selling for some $1.4 million each for 888 square feet, according to the local real estate tracking site BuzzBuzzHome.
Mayor John Tory is set to be on hand for the groundbreaking.
