Toronto is losing another Yorkville favourite

La Société will celebrate its last night of service on Dec. 31

Yorkville’s swish French bistro La Société has announced it will close its doors on New Year’s Eve. The Parisian-influenced restaurant owned by INK Entertainment opened in 2011 and became known for its dramatic stained glass ceiling, excellent wine list, and well-executed French fare.  Also a favourite for posh weekend brunches, La Société’s popularity in its first year prompted INK to launch a second outpost of the restaurant in Montreal in 2013. 

Although it’s sad news for lovers of fancy brunch and fine French fare, the bistro is going out with a bang. To commemorate the last night of service on Dec. 31, La Société will serve a $100 prix fixe menu. The evening will also feature DJ music and free sparkling wine at midnight. In addition, the restaurant is hosting a four-course farewell dinner on Dec. 10, with a $90 set menu and a $45 wine-pairing option. 

Fans of INK Entertainment, which also owns Byblos, Estia, and Sofia, among other restaurants, will be pleased to learn that the group has a new concept in the works for the La Société space. Although no details have been revealed yet about the new restaurant, it will open “in the near future” according to a press release.
