Farewell to Fiasco

The downtown restaurant signs off this Friday



After nearly 15 years on Brenton Street, and a year under new ownership, Fiasco Restaurant (1463 Brenton Street) will close its doors permanently as of this Friday, June 26. Co-owners—and also the restaurant's chef and pastry chef —Morné Van Antwerp and Sue Ann Lambert extend thanks to their suppliers and customers for their support over the last year.

"When we took Fiasco over, it was kind of somebody else’s dream," says Lambert. "It was a learning opportunity, a way to get to know suppliers and scope out what the market was here, and experiment with where we wanted our menu to go." Sounds like this might not be the last we've heard of this pair. (Check this out for a teaser.)
