Tati Bistro is closing next month
After nearly six years on Harbord Street, Tati Bistro is winding down. Co-owners Wayne Parent and Whitney Brown made the announcement earlier this week on Facebook, and Parent told The Grid that one factor behind the decision was the increased competition in Toronto’s restaurant scene. Tati’s last day of operation will be Mother’s Day, on May 12, when they’ll offer both brunch and dinner; chef Laurent Brion, meanwhile, will continue to run Chabichou, the restaurant’s nearby sister cheese shop, with Brown. Tati’s space has already been sold to new owners, who plan to launch their own restaurant there—which means the airy back patio, passed down from Kensington Kitchen, will live on.
