It was a brief run for Harbour550, the upscale Mediterranean-Asian restaurant that launched at the end of October.

Harbour550 was the concept that took the place of Verre, which itself was shuttered without notice in September.

Though the opening team from Verre had long since fractured, some of its original owners carried on to create Harbour550, bringing on Chef Randy Fontana, who was behind dishes like meatballs with house-made focaccia, a lemon and turmeric-rubbed half-chicken, fresh seafood appetizers, and several handmade pastas.

The restaurant took its name from the location in Coal Harbour at 550 Denman Street.

On Sat. Nov. 21, Harbour550 posted a single image to its Instagram stories of their front door bearing posted documents.

"I am sorry to inform everyone that Harbour550 is shutting its doors due to a lease termination," reads the message from the restaurant.

"I would like to [thank] everyone for the love and support. Stay safe!" the caption concludes.
