Tortilla Flats

Tortilla Flats is back in business

Tortilla Flats on Queen West is deadpool no more. Two weeks ago we reported the restaurant was shut down by its landlord for unpaid rent in excess of $40,000. There was an instant outcry from our readers ranging from "that's a shame" to "good riddance". Now, detractors and fans alike might like to know that Tortilla Flats is back - re-opened under the same ownership with no major plans in the works for any changes.

According to an email we received from the current owner, the Flats ran into problems when the building's landlord let it be known they were selling the property. Because their lease was expiring, the owners decided to withhold January's rent until they got word whether they'd be able to renew their lease. The landlord got upset and locked them out.

After we reported the closure, the landlord reached out to the owners of the Flats and informed them the new owner wanted them to stay as a tenant. They then signed a new long-term lease and as of late last week they're back in business.
