Musa is gone for good
It looks like Musa, the little restaurant once at Dundas and Euclid, won't be coming back.
"I've decided I think I'm going to take a different path," owner Amy Fleischman told me when I asked her about Musa's fate. A five-alarm fire tore through the 120-year-old Victorian building housing the restaurant and a few second-floor apartments back in July. Right now, the building's owner is in negotiations with her insurance company, and the destiny of the structure is still a question mark.
"Though I miss my customers deeply, the lifestyle is just not fit for me at this time," Fleischman said. "I just put in so many hours."
A fundraiser this the summer helped to raise severance pay for some of Musa's employees. As for Fleischman, she said she's considering two different options right now--the details of which she's not ready to disclose--but that they're both in food.
Though the fire was six months ago, Fleischman says it's still difficult to go down to that corner. "It was a very special," she says. "Definitely the most beautiful building on the street." Hopefully, come springtime, we'll start to see some restoration.
