Tried to have a romantic anniversary dinner at East meets West on Gerrard last night. Their answering maching message indicated early in the afternoon that they had re-opened with their new menu and were excited to be back in business. Well, that had changed by 6:30 pm. A note on their door indicated the new chef (Signe from Riverside?) had departed suddenly and they would not re-open until they had a new chef and new menu.
Quite the drama. I never tasted their first or second menu. Wonder what's next for them and for the chef.
