TORONTO — Now that Bistro 990 has closed — just over a month after it was announced that the iconic restaurant and celebrity magnet would be replaced with a condo development — Bill Marshall, a film producer and writer, has recorded his thoughts on the closing in a National Post report.
“Bistro 990 lasted 28 years — probably more than a century in restaurant longevity,” writes Marshall, chair emeritus of the Toronto International Film Festival, in the Post. “It was the last in a series of eateries and drinkeries brought to Toronto by Tom Kristenbrun — the Jarvis House, El Mocambo, The Copa, The Ports, Bemelmans and the Belair Café — and they all taught Toronto how to eat and behave like a grown-up in a restaurant.”
The restaurant closed in March.
