YYC - 4th Spot
The former Karouzo's and then Titans (26 Ave/4th St NW) is coming alive with a new restaurant/bar. I understand there was a lot of water damage suffered by the building...which is probably why it has sat empty for so many years. No details on opening date/menu yet. Hopefully, it will bring another good option for the neighborhood.
When it was purchased and changed to Titan's they changed the menu and it didn't seem to be very good. Then they booted the sunday blues jam out and finally had the unknown water damage. So sad, Karouzo's was a great pizza place for 50 years or something crazy they had amazing chicken wings too.
I'm hopefull for the new place. There was furniture in the windows last time I looked on the way past.
A friend of mine was hired to work prep in the kitchen. They didn't have an opening date set in stone, but I think it is open now (I can confirm this with him).
From what he has told me the menu should be quite good. He did mention the burgers are huge, and that there was one sandwich on the menu that is really good (from what I remember of the descritption it involved bacon, cheese & possibly deep-frying) ;)
OK, this place is definitely open. Their official opening was this past Friday.
As for the sandwich I was talking about...I was close. It's called the Fat Boy Club. It's a traditional club sandwich, that uses whole chicken breasts...but those chicken breasts are stuffed with bacon & cheese. So it's almost like a Chicken Cordon Bleu club sammy :)
