There’s good news and bad news for Peterborough residents who love Greek and Italian food.
The bad news is that popular downtown restaurant Taso’s will be closing its George Street location for good in October.
“We have recently sold our downtown location, with our last day in operation being October 14th,” Taso’s posted on social media on Friday (September 22). “287 George Street will no longer operate as Taso’s Restaurant & Pizzeria as the space will become a new restaurant to serve the downtown core.”
Taso Hatzianastasiou opened his downtown Peterborough restaurant in 2019 in the location of the former Dobro bar, after extensive renovations.
The restaurant offers Greek and Italian food, specializing in Sicilian pan pizza.
The downtown location will be open with extended hours from September 26 until its last day of operation on October 14.
The good news is that Taso’s will still be available in Fowlers Corners, northeast of the city of Peterborough on the border of the City of Kawartha Lakes and Peterborough County.
Last year, Taso’s acquired the building at 18 Lindsay Road, the former location of Momma’s Pizzeria that closed in 2020.
“Although it’s going to be hard to leave, we’re looking forward to our new venture in Fowler’s Corners and are eager to welcome you all in our new home,” Taso’s wrote on social media. “We’ll be offering dine in, take out & delivery, along with a new menu. Stay tuned for more details.”
