rock lobster closing

Rock Lobster is closing its last Toronto location

Rock Lobster is closing its last remaining restaurant on Queen West this Saturday and a new collaboration from the folks behind Queen St. Warehouse and Darryl Fine from Bovine Sex Club is slated to replace it.

Set to open in early August, the new restaurant and bar will be called The DIME, and while it will feature the trademark $4.95 food menu just like at other Warehouse establishments, this location will be operated by part-owner and recent Vancouver-to-Toronto transplant Ryan McLeod.

Sean Young from the Warehouse Group is tightlipped on details, but notes that the concept will offer a unique, albeit less-than-$5 food menu, and there will be a heavy bourbon influence at the otherwise well rounded bar.
