2011 Food and Resto CLOSINGS

Hey, it's already time to launch a new series...Taste T.O. and Greg Clow are my main sources, but they are on hiatus...

Any word yet on some food, bar, and restaurant closings? I've got some prime candidates, but they have not yet announced...

    1. Just so you know, (Greg Clow and Sheryl Kirby) is no longer on hiatus. It's been back up and running for a few weeks now. Greg is continuing his Sunday updates on openings/closings, etc.

      1. Open Window Bakery as noted in a separate post.

          The whole lot of them??? Where am I going to get a big, ole-fashioned heavily frosted chocolate cake now???

            Sadly yes - there's a whole thread on the topic here. And discussion on where to find a comparable chocolate cake:

        2. Kokkino on the Danforth. Sign on the door seems to suggest that chattels have been seized because operators were not paying rent.

            Trapezzi on the Danforth was dark last night when I walked by at 7:00 p.m. (which is usually not a good sign). The website is down too (

              I guess you don't walk by there very often, it's been closed for over 4 months and I mentioned it in early December here:

                Trapezzi seemed to be open on the weekend.

              Ah, just walked by there the other night and was pointing out the communal table to my friend. I always meant to go for their "taco hell" night but never made it out (and looks like they aren't offering it for winter). ... Closes February 1st according to links

              1. re: shekamoo

                I'm still devastated that Oddfellows closed. Lordy, lordy, how I wish I could still visit my old hipster haunt again. :(

                  It's too bad that parts and labour isn't the next level
