Saying Goodbye…

To our dear friends of El Fogon,

After 16 wonderful (and sometimes tiresome) years we have decided to say adios to El Fogon Restaurant.

We are sad to say goodbye to all the kind and lovely people of St.Clair W and surrounding neighborhoods as well as the Peruvian and Latin American people from all over. It’s been a pleasure serving you.

Our tireless and fearless chef Silvia Riojas-Kamiya has finally decided it’s her time to (semi)retire. As some of you may know, the restaurant business is tough and all-consuming. We also have 3 little children and it is time for a change of pace and a well deserved break. To all of you who have taken the time to sneak into the kitchen and thank the chef personally or write us a nice review – you are the reason for her continued perseverance and love of cooking. Cooking from scratch everyday is a lot of work but she did it with love and attention. Thank you.

Special thanks to our staff over the years, family included, our vendors, our regulars, our neighbors, and our property owners. We are so grateful for your work, support and friendship.

We can’t say for sure what the future will bring but let’s just say “hasta luego” for now. If you wish to know what’s next for Chef Silvia please visit our website at and join our email list. Our “Join our Birthday List” will become our “Friends of El Fogon List”.

We hope to see you one last time. Our last day of business will be Sunday, January 28, 2018.

Gratefully Yours,

Celia & Silvia
