Sad face. Closed Feb 2.

The sign on his door:


To my valued customers, neighbours, and friends,

Over the past six years, it has been a great honour to be part of the Parkdale community. I’m proud to have served you the best of what Ontario has to offer, helping to introduce locally sourced, quality produce, and nose-to-tail dining to the city’s tables. However, it is with great sadness that I must announce Cowbell has closed as of February 2.

I would like to give my sincerest thanks to all Cowbell staff past and present. It is because of them that we have earned the loyalty and appreciation of so many wonderful customers. I cherish the legacy that Cowbell leaves behind, and look forward to what they will bring to the food community of this fine city.

Cheers, and eat well,
Mark Cutrara

Really too bad! Cutara will be doing catering, apparently. I guess we'll just have to find him at the Group of 7 Chefs thing for now...

    It really is too bad, one of my favourite meals last year was at Cowbell. His yummy brisket & white bean cassoulet with beef heart will have to be a happy memory instead :(

          With the explosion of openings of the last 2 years, something had to give. I'm sure we'll see more restaurants in the same vein as Cowbell (foodie/social media oriented) closing this year, competition is just too fierce nowadays.

          Anyways, best of luck to him. It's never fun to close a resto, especially on the wallet.
