Two trendy Toronto restaurants in Yorkville were destroyed in a 4-alarm fire Christmas night.
Sotto-Sotto and Spuntini Ristorante and Bar on Avenue Road near Davenport went up in flames shortly after 7:00 p.m.
An apartment in the same building was also destroyed. Fortunately no one was in it at the time.
Sotto-Sotto is a popular dining spot for visiting Hollywood stars, either at the Toronto International Film Festival, or when in town shooting a movie.
Spuntini co-owner Peter Catarin says it’s too soon to know if they’ll re-open anytime soon.
The cause of the fire hasn’t been deremined, and damage is estimated at more than a million dollars.
