Another luxury restaurant has become a victim of the economic downturn, the Four Seasons Toronto will be shutting down its 37-year-old restaurant, Truffles, as of September 5. Fine French fare seems particularly vulnerable in this economy. Truffles, which was consistently rated as one of the city's top restaurants, served creative but formal fare rich in its namesake ingredient. The restaurant's signature dish was spaghettini with served with a a sauce of reduced chicken stock, cream and truffle oil with a foamed truffle sauce covered in black truffle shavings. The Four Seasons is building a new hotel in a different location and that hotel will feature a more casual restaurant.
