Reply to "Lose any restaurants lately?"

Just chiming in for Toronto, Canada, the fine dining scene here has been battered during this recession period. Since about 2008, we've lost a few very established highly reputed restaurants such as:

  • Susur (Susur Lee went to NYC to open Shang)
  • Truffles (at Four Seasons)
  • Perigee
  • Xacutti

And a few other established highly regarded restaurants were sold, like:

  • Splendido
  • Celestin
  • Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar
  • Crush Wine Bar (sold just this week to a hotel group)

These restaurants represented some of the city's better, if not best. We'll surely recover, but Toronto's fine dining landscape is currently a shadow of its former self.
