Toronto's pay what you want restaurant closes

The Dundas West restaurant that charmed the so-called Million Dollar Critic, Giles Coren, with its bottom-feeder-friendly and menu-less service is no longer.

Nathan Isberg's The Atlantic has closed its doors for good, reports Toronto Life. Isberg dropped menus from his restaurant and allowed guests to pay what they wanted for their meals. Patrons could also barter for their dinner.

More recently, Isberg stopped serving booze as yet another way to push the limits of the restaurant concept.

Isberg is noted for experimenting with unusual ingredients but also for his unique approach to the dining experience itself. With the closure of this eccentric eatery, there's now a hole for Toronto diners looking for an unconventional dining experience.
