Laurentian Room Closed?

Passed by today and there was a sign that said "closed until further notice".

Anyone know what happened? Just a normal TO restaraunt casualty??

  1. Bank apparently foreclosed on them. Our office x-mas party was supposed to be there!

    1. Umm... not a surprise. It had its moment as a very happening place, and those were great times, but attitude and (I'm told) inconsistant food killed it. My faith in the food never took flight, as once I was looking at the menu and wondered WTF is feshuada. Hmm... Ethiopian, perhaps? Then I read the description... Oh, they meant feijoada. The bar staff were some of the worst in the city, the worst being the one who behaved like a supermodel and looked like Morticia. I'm sad to see the space go, though. I hope that someone can take it over. That said, looks good on John Bernardo, the guy who killed the Winch.

        Well, hope someone with better management skills takes it over. Was onyl there once, but it's a beauiful (and storied) space.
