Where did THE COBOURG go?

I LOVED that little wine bar. Did they retire? Move? Just get out of the business?

      I checked out their twitter feed and there is a posting on July 21 tat says they sold the place a couple of months ago and suggestions that renovations are being done.

        How did I miss that? I'm in my old hood every week or two.

        Oh, I could just cry. The Cobourg fit a uniquely Cabbagetown little niche that's utterly irreplaceable. Well I hope wherever the old owners are, they're doing well. They certainly provided the neighbourhood with a sweet, fun and comforting spot for years. I wish them well.

        The further bad news is the new owners have opened a "sushi" restaurant which seems more of a Maki restaurant. The further bad news is that, despite the tender nature of raw fish, they were keeping the front door wide open in yesterday afternoon's very hot weather.
