    I posted about the closing a while ago on the 2010 Closing thread. We had heard a rumour about the closing and called and they told us it was true, so we made a reservation for their final night in business and it was jam packed. Everyone there was a "regular" and everyone was shaking hands and hugging the staff as they paid their bills and left. It was definitely an institution for those of us in the neighbourhood. I think they just had enough. Most likely their lease was up and they just didn't want to continue. Anyway, there is apparently a sushi restaurant going in. It will be interesting to see if a sushi restaurant will make it in that plaza.

    As a replacement in the area (or in my opinion, an even better option), I would suggest the Steak Pit, which is also an institution. Although the portions are nowhere near the size of the Place for Steak, I think the quality is far superior. Just a suggestion!
