My Diner Is Gone! :-(

A South Granville institution suddenly closed this past week and may never reopen. The Normandy Restaurant has been around for 70 years. But the retail lease rates in the area have been going sky high the past few years and the restaurant was slated to close in January.

But this past week there was a fire in the kitchen which caused extensive damage in various parts of the restaurant. Very sad.

Even more sad is that it'll likely be replaced with another generic lingerie shop, coffee shop, or chocolate boutique. If only one could subsist on just these things alone . . .
