Yasi's Place goes deadpool

Yasi's Place, known for its brunch and signature potatoes, deadpooled last week. According to Yasi Zorlutuna, who first opened the restaurant on Wallace Ave. west of Lansdowne, the business had been struggling financially.

"I actually sold my share of the business to my partner back in June," she says. "I just wanted to move on, start a family. But I know since then sales have been going down."

Competition (Bloordale Pantry, Zocalo, Starving Artist, June Harlowe Foods) has also been moving into the area. "When I opened we were the only alternative brunch place in the area," Zorlutuna said. "Now there are tons of places."

Since she had sold her share of the business, the final decision was up to Yasi's manager and owner. "It's really tragic because it was so fast. After the decision was made, the doors were closed three days later."
