Smalltalk Moved or Closed ?

Does anyone know if Samlltalk (on Bayview) moved or just closed down ?

My wife really enjoyed going there on weekends.

  1. I'm pretty sure they closed up shop. If it was a move, one would think they would have put up a sign to let their customers know, no?

    1. They were evicted for non-payment of rent (bailiff sign on the door) earlier this year. I don't expect them to reopen anywhere.

        Correct. It closed apparently for non-payment of rent. In its place recently opened "Joey Fiasco" an Italian restaurant which I've heard might be owned by the McSorley's owners... which might make you question whether the food is authentic Italian or pub grub "Italian"... but I heard from someone who went there recently that the food is actually quite good and at a reasonable price point. I haven't been there yet so I can't confirm, but I've been told it's worth a try.

          It is McSorley's (their phone number is displayed in the window). It is reasonably priced. I've had no reports about the food so far.
