Poutine Plus, a new restaurant that opened a few months ago on 657 Queen Street West at Bathurst, is now temporarily closed under mysterious circumstances. Spice City Toronto wrote out this kitschy place a few months ago in the post My French Canadian boyfriend says this is the best poutine in Toronto.
I heard reports a few days ago that the place was closed. I went by and saw this rather cryptic sign on the door.
The sign says "Poutine Plus Ltd. is closed due to structural problems within and around our premise. Poutine Plus Ltd. has been closed several days due to these problems which are in no way as a result of how we intended to conduct our business. Please accept our apologies to our New and Regular Guests...."
Huh? It was rather cryptic so I sent an email. Poutine Plus responded: "We have had some problems with the plumbing...We hope to have it done soon."
We hope so too!
Update on March 14, 2011: The place has a for lease sign in the window and it's empty inside, so doesn't look it will open again at this location. Previously there was a for rent sign for the apartment upstairs, but this new sign is definitely for the business space.
