After seven years on the resto front lines, Monica Chang has sold her Korean bistro, San (676 Queen West, at Euclid, 416-214-9429). The new owners -- who include a former Il Bun Ji sushi chef -- have ditched the more adventurous dishes on her card and taken the stylish west-side cantina in a more traditional pseudo-Japanese direction.
"It's everything I fought against for years!" laughs Chang, who has no plans other than to focus on her five-year-old daughter. "But I accomplished everything I set out to do, and that was to introduce Korean food to non-Koreans in a contemporary setting."
