The restaurant industry is a fickle one, so while we know that eventually some eateries inevitably will need to close their doors we never want to see them shut for good, especially when they’ve been around for decades.
But alas, this is the way of the foodie world. Here is your update on which legendary restaurants have closed recently in or around Vancouver.
The restaurant opened in 1955 and has been a beloved local haunt serving up meatballs and pasta on the regular ever since that is until it closed in April after 62 years of operation.
Technically in West Vancouver, but well known as a North Shore institution, Earls Tin Palace North Vancouver closed in April after epic 34 years of service.
Bob’s Submarine Sandwiches operated in Brighouse Square, an inconspicuous single-story strip mall on Richmond’s No. 3 Road, for almost three decades and it closed at the end of March.
After 17 years the time has officially come for this retro burger-and-fries joint, known for their deluxe and extra-beefy offerings to close up shop at their current spot. Moderne Burger’s final day at the West Broadway space will be Sunday, April 29.
