An Osborne Village institution is getting ready to turn off its pizza ovens for good.
Papa George’s restaurant, a neighbourhood mainstay for more than three decades, will close in mid-October.
"I’m retiring. My health isn’t that good," said owner Nick Kontzamanis.
The 25 or so staff members have known about the move since earlier this summer.
Papa George’s is perhaps best known – thanks largely to its neon signs – for being open until 4 a.m.
