A post on Instagram announced that the Dundas and Ossington extension of Schmaltz Appetizing will be closing on October 6.

The location, which opened in 2017, briefly tested out opening in the evening for latkes and cocktails, and became a resource for Schmaltz's "schmakes" cakes and was much larger than the other location.

The other location at Dupont behind other Anthony Rose project Fat Pasha will remain open. Schmaltz Appetizing could not be reached for comment regarding the reason behind the Ossington closure or what might be taking its place.
