Ronnie B's Southern Kitchen closes after four months

Ronnie B's Southern Kitchen has been shuttered after just four short months of slinging Cajun, Southern and Creole cuisine in Cabbagetown. According to a tip sent in by a reader, the restaurant shut down in recent weeks, ostensibly due to problems with frozen water pipes - but a notice of rent non-payment now posted on the door appears to suggest otherwise.

The restaurant opened in September with a menu that positioned down-south classics like blackened catfish and po'boys alongside mac 'n' cheese spring rolls and unpretentious cocktails. (Lamentably, this is the second Toronto spot featuring a mac 'n' cheese-filled food item to hit the deadpool this week.)

The family-run spot had big plans, including live music and a "wall of fame" for everyone who tried each one of their seven signature drinks - and even pulled in a few celeb diners, including Craig Kielburger and Ed Robertson - but it seems it sadly wasn't enough to keep the joint afloat. Today, we pour out a Kahlua mudslide in their honour.
