South of Temperance CLOSED https://www.facebook.com/southoftemperance

WOW. A friend of mine was just there a few weeks back. Great food. Nice atmosphere. Patio ROCKED! Sad to see it go :(

Guess they had an offer they couldn't refuse.
On their Facebook page says they are looking for a new home.

    I understood this restaurant was always intended to be a temporary, giving life to the square until construction on the second tower of the Bay Adelaide Center began. I believe that's starting to move ahead now. The restaurant was not really my type of scene, but I don't think it closed because it wasn't doing well -- it always seemed crowded when I went past.

      Interesting, never seen anyone else on here say the food was "good"... Sounded more like a "meat" market to me but I believe they already have another space secured at Yonge/Temperance no?

        Too bad they're not gone for good.

          This was announced previously in the closings thread back in June so not really a surprise:

            I don't think this is any loss at all. The food I had there was meh at best and the suits were worse.

                Still very surprising as it was always jam packed whenever I went or walked by

                Yep - pretty dreadful, and so LOUD we had to go outside to be sure that our conversation (business related) was clearly understood. A diabolical dump, only for those in the market for human meat.
