The Harbord Room is closing at the end of the month

For the past 10 years, The Harbord Room has been a go-to Toronto spot for intimate dinners, well-crafted drinks and epic burgers. But now the Annex-area restaurant is getting ready to close its doors for good.

In a Facebook post, the Harbord Room team explains why they're shutting down. "It wasn't easy coming to this conclusion but we feel it's for the best. The Harbord Room was always an owner operated restaurant, you could always find Cory [Vitiello] in the kitchen or Dave [Mitton] behind the bar most nights of the week," reads the post.

"That hasn't been the case the last two years, Cory and Shiki have opened a small chain of restaurants called Flock that take up most of their time, Dave has taken on the role of Global Ambassador for Canadian whisky which keeps him constantly traveling outside of the country, and Liz has started and is focusing on her family right now," it continued.

The Harbord Room will stay open until October 29, so you still have time to say your goodbyes and eat one last hamburger.
