Screamin' Mimi's No Mo!

Slouched through Lonsdale Quay today and was stunned to see Screaming Mimi's is gone!

Yes that icon of salty goodness is being replaced (by some brewery)-ironic given the increased popularity of all things Oyster.

Kosta's Salmon Shop on the other side of the building now contains a bare bones bivalve operation with a few offerings but it's not the same.

  1. hi SS - the one thing I am not clear about - is there a business connection betw/ MM and Kostas - ie were they the same family / business before this closure or have the Kosta folks adopted MM name? do you know?

    i couldn't figure it out on the website for Kosta's

      I'm pretty sure Kostas owns them both-or owned-so maybe the consolidation made sense financially.
