Anyone know why Susur closed for August? - any other suggestions?

James | May 4, 2006 06:34 PM

It's been 6 years since I lived in Toronto and am taking my partner up from San Diego on his first ever trip to Toronto. Just tried to make a reservation at Susur for August and was told that Susur is closed that month but he wouldn't say why. Does anyone know? Despite some of the negative reviews, I had a decent experience there before and had hoped to take him for high-end Chinese beyond the meagre offerings available here in San Diego. I may have to rent a car to take him to some of the offerings up in Richmond Hill / Markham I imagine...

Also looking for any other suggestions in a similar ballpark - other ethnic foodchoices also welcome - any comments on his partner restaurant 'Lee' (which apparently IS open during August)? People here seem quite smitten with Splendido so we may give that a try. One of my fondest memories of Toronto has always been the incredible food, certainly compared to here in San Diego where they can't seem to do anything exceptionally good except maybe Thai (not even Mexican food). Our last two most memorable meals back in Canada have been DaMaurizio in Halifax, and Toque in Montreal. I'm hoping to best both of those this time around...

I'll also be sure to start going through the host of messages on this forum...
