The Tulip, a Toronto diner/steakhouse which has been around for 90 years, has closed. They posted the following on Facebook: “Unfortunately, business conditions have changed regarding our lease agreement in ways we can no longer accommodate, and we have been left with no choice.”
I used to work in that east-end neighbourhood some years ago, and had quite a few steak sandwiches at The Tulip back in the day. Not so long ago, I dropped in for lunch with my friend Hobie. We had been on a nature walk at near-by Ashbridges Bay, and when we considered where to get a bite to eat, I remembered the Tulip. It was pretty much as I remembered it. I’m glad we had a chance to lunch there before they closed.
I wonder what happened? Has condo-fever reached that area? If so, there will be a lot of small businesses in trouble in the area in the next few years.
