Ackee Tree goes deadpool
Ackee Tree, the Caribbean restaurant near the corner of Queen and Spadina, has closed. The windows were papered over this morning and a note posted that gave little explanation for the closure. Ackee Tree started as a food court staple in the depths of the Eaton Centre before opening a swankier location here. Readers once voted it number one on our Best Jerk Chicken list but it didn't stop there, also serving up a tasty ackee and saltfish and oxtail among other specialties.
Ackee Tree will be missed and creates something of a void of decent Caribbean options downtown with the nearest alternative now being Pat's Homestyle a few blocks west.
Here's a photo of the note that was posted to the window:
