Fishbar gets gutted on Ossington

Fishbar's four year run on Ossington has come to an unceremonious end as the landlord locked the doors on June 30th due to unpaid rent. While the bailiff's notice posted on the front door doesn't indicate how much the restaurant is behind, it doesn't appear the situation will be resolved.

Fishbar opened in 2011 when Ossington's restaurant boom was in full swing. Lauded immediately for its sustainable seafood offerings, the restaurant enjoyed a loyal following throughout its tenure. There was no warning that closure was imminent. Customers with reservations earlier this week arrived to find the restaurant shuttered.

Fishbar's owners also run Salt Wine Bar just north on Ossington. It's still open for business as usual. Perhaps two restaurants on the ever more expensive stretch just wasn't sustainable.
