Claudio Aprile has just announced that he is closing the highly acclaimed Colborne Lane. “I feel that I’ve said everything I’ve had to say with this restaurant,” Aprile tells us. “It’s time for me to focus on different projects. It just feels right.”

Those other projects include the newly opened Origin Liberty, Origin North (which is slated to open in May) and Trillium (which will be opening at Pearson Airport).

Aprile did not reveal a specific closing date for Colborne Lane, but he did indicate that it would be a matter of weeks, not months.

No word yet on what type of establishment will replace Colborne Lane.

UPDATE: Colborne Lane’s last day of operation will be Saturday, Feb 23.
