DineSafe Toronto

This week on DineSafe: Churrasco of St. Clair, Kiwe Kitchen, The Roxton, Dragon House, Spicy and Sweet

More than half of our list is seeing red this week. That's right, there were closures all over the place. The two CNE red cards didn't necessarily come as a surprise after the cronut burger ordeal, but what happened with the rest of the city? Despite all of the closures, the most heartbreaking, at least for me, might be the conditional pass given to The Roxton. As one of my favourite patio spots, maybe it's a sign that summer is truly coming to an end.
