Brentwood Fish and Chps Place (Captains) Gone? YYC

The message seems superfluous after that wordy subject line!

Went past this morning and there is paper over the windows, anyone know if they moved?

    You know I've lived in Varsity/Brentwood for 20 years and never ate there. I kind of feel bad for not supporting a mom/pop shop but at the same time I never heard anyone talk about it or them advertise at all. It's such a tiny spot, would be cute to keep a restaurant in there.

      There was a thread some time ago about where to get good fish and chips and it was mentioned.

      Everything is gone from that wing of the shopping mall except a hairdresser. Have to wonder if there are renovation plans.

      It closed a month or two ago.
      One of the TV stations did a piece about them closing - I think the cameraman got the last dinner made. As I recall, a customer offerred and purchased one of the tables (for a picnic bench?) so I don't think they were going to re-open somewhere else.

        Damn. Well, I guess with the redevelopment of the Brentwood area as a TOD we'll see things close but in the very long term we'll see much much more OPEN- hopefully before I'm retired in 14 years.

        On the topic of fish n chips- I tried it at Swiss Chalet a couple weeks ago- it was actually delicious!
