      Sparta Rotisserie & Grill CLOSED.

      I was walking by Sparta Rotisserie on Ste. Catheirne and noticed a sign that said closed due to fire. The Tutti Fruitti is open as are other stores on that stretch, but they're gone. Does anyone know if they'll be back?

    2. What is the count of the actual closing (excluding discussions) in all those years? is there a corelation between the local/global economy vs. closings ?

        I do not know if I have the time of the motivation to even try and figure that one out. But I did just find a copy of a 1990 Zagat Montreal and am interested in looking into what still remains. Personally, I'd guess it has more to do with how popular Chowhound was/is than anything else.

          1. Vic Market on Victoria is closing on Sunday. All products are on sale at less 40 percent.

              There's a notice on the windows saying they are only closed for "améliorations".

              will follow up on that.

                The "ameliorations" are a complete change of format (i.e Asian cuisine) as well as liquor, etc. The "market" part is history.
