I got a call an hour ago from Steve da Cruz, the owner of Corner Suite Bistro De Luxe, saying that he’d closed the restaurant for good, which is pretty sad news (not just because I recommend it on TV today). The Corner Suite was one of my and many others’ favourite restaurants to open this year, so…bummer. 850 Thurlow was a hard location (formerly Piccolo Mondo and Saveur), but I thought Steve had it licked.

In the paper this week I wrote that 2011 would probably see a lot of closures, but I didn’t expect they’d include one as good as this, especially since it had yet to see its first birthday. Makes me wonder who will drop next…

Best of luck to Steve and his staff in their future endeavours.
