A message on the website for Ardor Bistro, the year-old restaurant at 59 Ossington Avenue from the owners of Celestin, confirms that the business is no more. Despite solid reviews, Ardor never really seemed to take off—possibly because its South American ceviches and stews were a bit too nuanced to compete with the strip’s pizzas, poutines and Asian bar snacks (the subtle signage and nondescript decor probably didn’t help). According to co-owner Ivan Tarazona, the business was sold earlier this summer, which means Ossington will likely soon be getting yet another new restaurant.
