Gardens on Glendon-closed to general public-private parties only-

Called to make a lunch reservation yesterday. Message on machine is that they are now only open for private holiday parties. So sad...I was somewhat surprised although business had seemed to be down as of late.

      but still sad. It had been there for so many years, they did do a good rotisserie chicken and petitte filet sandwich and it was pretty. So many people are probably out of work so suddenly...

        Loved the guacamole made at table side.

          well, this can be said for any restaurant or business that closes. in fact, the gardens took over an independently-owned coffee shop/cafe (and a few clothing stores) when it opened. so, too bad for those employees too. i was definitely sad to see hamburger hamlet take over a small business.

          the fact is that the food at the gardens was awful, it was extremely overpriced, i never cared for the service and i think it will be better as something else. i wish the original coffee shop that had been there would reopen, but i know that's a dream.

          hopefully a better business will do well in the space.

        Hamburger Hamlet in a party dress - WAAAAAY over-priced.
        Let em eat Kate Mantalini, with similar results.
