Mexican restaurant abruptly closes and neighbourhood is heartbroken
A Mexican restaurant that consistently ranked among one of Toronto's best since it opened in 2018 has abruptly closed.
Cinco Mexican restaurant informed customers of the sudden closed this past weekend.
In a notice posted to their front window, the owners noted that it was "with great sadness" that the restaurant was closing.
"We have taken the decision NOT to sign our lease extension, we apologize for the abrupt decision, although it was heart breaking and a very difficult one to make, we believe that it was the right one," the owners wrote in the notice.
The notice went on to thank the Roncesvalles community for their support over the years.
As word has spread around the neighbourhood, former customers have been lamenting the closure and the "huge loss" it will be for the area.
Cinco was known for their excellent tacos as well as other Mexican fare and drinks including great margaritas.
