Every now and then we have to report bad news in the food and drink industry.
We’ve unfortunately known for a few weeks now, but, out of respect to the owner and to allow him to contact his customers first with the news, we kept it to ourselves. Foia Ristorante, located in Tecumseh, has closed their doors for good.
Today, owner Rosario Montaleone released this statement to his customers:
To our many regular customers, vegan dinner guests and those who took the opportunity to try our restaurant, we are very grateful for the support and patronage over the last eight and a half years. Our desire to operate a warm, contemporary, fine food, neighbourhood restaurant owned and operated by a family here in Windsor-Essex, for the residents of the Windsor-Essex community couldn’t have been possible without you.
We are honoured that over the years we were able to share in your dining outings, business meetings, family dinners, special occasions and holidays, and we are thankful for the many friendships and memories created.
We also want to thank the wonderful people we got to know throughout the years who worked with us both behind the scenes in the kitchen and in the front of the house serving you.
Lastly a sincere thank you to everyone, the experiences were great and the memories everlasting.
I leave foia with great happiness in that it has been a wonderful part of my life.
I have begun a new chapter with my wife and newborn son and may it continue with great success
