Montreal Restaurant Openings and Closings October to December 2013
Judging by the other threads. I imagine that this will top out at about 200 replies or so. And if people like that we can continue it quarterly in 2014.
Quarterly seems like a good compromise. Monthly is too many threads to check when you vaguely recall something being discussed in your hood. But seeing as we keep getting into pointless albeit somewhat amusing (in a timewasting facebookey way) discussions about whether Starbucks is germane or if a concept is ripped off from Toronto or a name will pass mustard with the language cops, yearly threads are just getting way too long.
Anyhow, not exactly Chow-ish but I think worthy of note trend-wise:
Radio Lounge is closed and reopening as (merging with?) Bar Le Dorchester at 1121 Anderson (between Bleury and Jeanne-Mance, below Rene-Levesque). It looked as busy as ever, so I don't know why.
Radio Lounge was a loud, uncouth meatmarket, as crappy as outward appearance / crowd loitering outside at 3am would lead one to think (went only once to wing a friend).
Nonetheless, it took up a huge chunk of (one-time?) prime real estate. Not good news for St-Laurent.
