Riversdale building that housed The Hollows, Golden Dragon demolished
Owners decided it was too expensive to bring the Saskatoon building up to code
The Saskatoon building that was home to the Golden Dragon Chinese restaurant for many years, and more recently The Hollows restaurant, was demolished on Friday.
The Hollows closed earlier this year, after learning the building's owners had decided not to spend the money to bring the structure up to code.
The Hollows was one of the Riversdale neighbourhood's first restaurants to focus on farm-to-table dining.
When the restaurant closed, Hollows owner and chef Christie Peters said it was disappointing to have to leave the old Golden Dragon spot, on Avenue C S. at 19th Street W.
"It's so beautiful in here," she said in an April interview. "It's like a time capsule."
The Hollows was open for eight years.
The owners have consolidated their business at its sister restaurant, Primal, located a few blocks away.
