Metropolitan Hotel sold, Lai Wah Heen fate uncertain

Does this mean the end of some of the most delicious dim sum in downtown Toronto? Maybe. (How's that for a satisfying answer?)

Metropolitan Hotels has completed the sale of its Metropolitan Toronto Hotel to Bayview Hospitality Group, an exchange that will include Lai Wah Heen and Hemispheres Restaurant and Bistro. According to management at Lai Wah Heen, the restaurant has received a directive to shut down operations by February 15, though whether the restaurant will reopen under the new management still remains unclear.

As for the hotel itself, all guest suites and many common areas will undergo a bit of a facelift, though hopefully the Waygu beef dumplings will remain unaffected.
