The curse of 335 Yonge Street continues: wall collapses at Tatami Sushi
The corner of Yonge and Gould has to be the worst place in the city to set up shop. This afternoon, the brick wall above the relatively new Tatami Sushi restaurant collapsed, and now the entire area is closed off. Photos of the debris are already flooding the Internet, thanks to the fact that Ryerson University is right there. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt.
Tatami Sushi is just the latest in a revolving door of businesses that hoped to break the curse that hangs over 335 Yonge Street. Before Tatami opened in March, the space was occupied by Strata Shoes, which lasted about one year. Before that, it was the forgettable Frank’s Gourmet Hot Dog Restaurant that failed. Another generic shoe store was there for a short time before Frank’s arrived, but nothing ever got the same buzz as the adjacent Salad King, which has been downtown’s go-to place for cheap Thai food for years.
