The Guild may be the latest restaurant to fall victim to Toronto’s oversaturated dining market. BlogTO reports that the roomy eatery at Dundas and Dufferin halted operations last month, and is currently up for sale. The Guild, which opened around this time last year, was known for its over-the-top brunch menu (lobster Benny, foie gras French toast), and also for being one of the few spots in the area that could easily seat a party of more than four people. The long winter appears to have been a struggle, though. We’re not entirely surprised: the place always seemed a bit too big and polished to thrive on a strip of Dundas known for its poky cafés and dives. Interested restaurateurs with $325,000 to spare can check out the real-estate listing here.
