Temporary restaurant Come And Get It (170 Spadina Ave., at Queen) opened in February 2012 as a placeholder for an incoming condo, but ended up staying around for a year-and-a-half serving some of the city’s tastiest sandwiches, salads, and poutines. Sadly, that’s all coming to an end in the fall, as owner Jon Polubiec has confirmed that the eatery will close in mid-October to finally make way for the condo construction.
“We don’t know if we’ll find another location or where it would be,” says Polubiec. “But a year-and-a-half is a good go. It’s bittersweet. I’d say we have no more than three months left, maybe closer to two.” Polubiec says he’s been looking for a permanent spot to move his restaurant for the past year but has yet to find anything that works, though he’ll keep looking. —Karon Liu
