We put a call into the restaurant a few moments ago for confirmation. The plan is to close tomorrow, after two decades at 170 Allen St.
Allen Street just isn’t what it used to be in terms of foot traffic, they say, so there wasn’t much choice. At the moment, there are no plans to open in another location.
