To adapt a Meat Loaf lyric: three out of four restos ain't bad.
Co-owners and chefs Nuit and Jeff Regular have announced their sudden departure from Khao San Road (326 Adelaide W, at Peter, 647-352-5773, khaosanroad.ca). The news comes only weeks after the couple launched the second outpost of Sukhothai as well as their new Sabai Sabai bistro. No one is more surprised than the Regulars.
"We really don't want to talk about it," says Jeff. "It's just something that came out of the blue."
"As sometimes happens with business partners, we saw things differently from each other," explains Regular. "We're both very proud of what we built at Khao San Road and we will miss our customers and staff there."
Their long-time associate Monte Wan has taken over the KSR reins.
"We are quite sad of the departure of Jeff and Nuit, but we do have a very capable staff, both front and back, that have been with us from the start," says Wan. "We do not have any plans to replace chef Nuit, but we will need something in her absence. It was a very hard and heartbreaking decision for all of us, but we wish her the best of luck at her new venture."
