A piece of the self-proclaimed “Vegandale” body of plant-based eateries will be closing its door permanently at the end of the month.

Mythology posted the news on their Instagram on Saturday, revealing that their last service will be on New Year’s Eve. The message was accompanied only by the caption: “Bittersweet.”

“We extend our sincerest gratitude to those who came through the doors of Mythology Diner when it first opened back in 2017 and put us on the map,” the post reads.

“As we take in the drastic shift in landscape of the Toronto food scene over the past few years with more vegan options available than ever before, we close the doors of Myth feeling confident the world is starting to listen.”

Formerly the retro Mythology Diner, the restaurant rebranded itself as Mythology, and reopened in July as a higher-end resto-pub for intimate dinners and cocktails under the guidance of chef Doug McNish.

The post goes on to say that The 5700 Inc., the company that owns Mythology, will continue to push to bring its flagship event, the Vegandale Food Drink Festival, to a global audience.

The 5700 Inc. owns and operates the international Vegandale Food Drink Festivals, as well as Toronto’s Queen West businesses that make up Vegandale storefront collective — The Imperative, Vegandale Brewery, Copenhagen, and Not Your Mother.

There is no word on if and how the closure will impact the other members of the collective.
