Kubo Radio Enters the Deadpool
Kubo Radio has closed its doors - at least temporarily. While the restaurant is open for private functions through the holidays, come the new year it will be shutting down. A notice posted to the front door explains that the restaurant will be undergoing renovations and will re-open again in the Spring.
As a result of the closure Babycake, one of Toronto's finest purveyors of cupcakes have moved next door to Lil' Baci which shouldn't be a surprise because the neighbouring restaurants are owned by the same people.
As for Kubo - it had an interesting run. This was its third reincarnation (with previous locations in the Design Exchange and Merchandise Building) and each time it seemed to be missing the secret ingredient that would lead to success. The food and service were inconsistent and it could be said that the food was overpriced and underspiced compared to what you could get a few blocks north in East Chinatown. One friend described it as the sort of take on Asian cuisine you'd find at Spring Rolls but hipper.
