Enzo Pizzabar closes and moves to Los Angeles

Toronto's Enzo Pizzabar has shuttered its West Queen West shop, joining the exodus of restaurants that are vacating the neighbourhood at the moment.

Rather than a victim of soaring rent, however, owner Ryan Menchella tells us that an American hospitality group bought his business, including his recipes and all assets related to the Enzo Pizzabar brand.

While Enzo's Queen Street outpost is deadpool, the US company will soon be opening locations in both Los Angeles and in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

Menchella isn't exiting the Toronto restaurant scene for good. Rather, he says he's working on a new project that'll be inside an undisclosed Toronto hotel. You can read the full note ownership has posted about the purchase/closure below.
