Metro Vancouver Restaurant News thread
 
Since it kind of hard to start a thread for each closure, I thought this might help.

First off: Delilah's. I was surprised it closed, it was such a West End fixture. When did that happen?

Also, as I mentioned recently, Pings on Main is no longer. Sadness.

The Keg on Dunsmuir closed last week. There are signs in the window suggesting something "new" coming, but no Keg logo, so it doesn't appear to be renovations...

In papers filed on July 5, the restaurant, now with four locations -- Chinatown and Robson Street in Vancouver, Sunwood Square in Coquitlam and 408 Sixth St. in New Westminster -- owes more than $400,000 to its creditors.

Approximately half that amount is owed as wages to employees.

Owner Gala Ip told CBC News that while it's true the creditor protection papers were filed last month, upper management is trying to work out a solution for all its creditors.

Hon's closed its Richmond location in December 2009, but Ip said senior management is trying its best to keep all four current locations open. The company has until Sept. 26 to file its restructuring plan.

The restaurant chain started in 1972 with its flagship Chinatown location. The late Hon Kwong Ip opened his first restaurant there and was one of the first in the Lower Mainland to serve authentic Hong Kong-style won ton noodles.

Earls in White Rock just closed down. They were there for 18 years or something like that.

Oops, apparently I was wrong and Delilah's didn't close down, it was temporarily renamed for a TV show or something.

Aquariva (the restaurant at Granville Square) will be closing at the end of the year.

Are they closing or just moving? I heard someone mentioning an existing restaurant was looking to move into the old Metro space at Waterfront Centre but I didn't hear which restaurant it was.

Anyone know whats going on with Capones in Yaletown? I read they were doing renovations a few months ago, is that still going on? The website doesn't work anymore. Any insight?

edit: they seem alive according to their twitter
