Caplansky's restaurant reopening after court battle

Toronto smoked meat fans must be kvelling because Caplansky's College Street delicatessen will reopen tomorrow at 9 a.m.

Zane Caplansky was locked out of his restaurant and his lease was terminated earlier this week for "failing to effect repairs not authorized by the landlord." Caplansky filed an injunction and appeared in court this morning.


The judge ruled in his favour, allowing him back into his College Street space. But this isn't the end of the smoked meat saga. According to CityNew, the subsequent lawsuit will go before the courts at another time.
