The owners of Le Sélect, Jean-Jacques Quinsac and Frederic Geisweiller, one of the oldest French restaurants in Toronto opening in 1977, is selling to Allied Properties, a REIT company. They said Allied is seeking an operator to manage the restaurant but no details.

They reportedly considered calling it quits back in 2019 when their property taxes went through the roof (no pun intended!) due to a property tax reassessment. Looks like the COVID shutdowns were the last straw.

Frankly, the restaurant has been meh for a while, sitting on their laurels. So maybe new ownership will breath it some new life.
