Metropolitan Hotels put out a press release yesterday afternoon announcing that Lai Toh Heen, the cheaper Davisville cousin of downtown’s acclaimed dim sum temple Lai Wah Heen, will be closing for good on Sept. 18 of this year. “Lai Toh Heen has seen many successes in the past five years and now it’s time to take what we’ve learned and apply this culinary knowledge to our other restaurants,” said Metropolitan president Henry Wu in the release. No word yet on what might replace the midtown favourite.
