Could Riverside’s Toucan Taco Bar, at 686 Queen Street East, be the canary in the coal mine of Toronto’s taco craze? Richard Henry opened the restaurant last spring right near the peak of the city’s taco trend, but he’s already shut its doors and plans to replace it with a new concept come January. (He refused to divulge what it will be—Roadrunner Ramen, perhaps?) Before it was Toucan, the space housed Henry’s Le Rossignol, which he relocated down the street into the same space as his Le Canard Mort, to make space for the taco bar.
