The southwest corner of Saint-Laurent and Mont-Royal has not been charitable (who remembers Savannah?) but Macaroni Bar has made a go of it since 2008. Chef/owner Sergio Mattoscio even won a measure of celebrity for his signature gnocchi poutine and stint on Top Chef Canada.
Half a decade on and brazen supperclub concepts seem passé. Moreover, the most recent Yelp comments on Macaroni Bar have been less than kind.
And so, with nary a Facebook or Twitter update, the restaurant has gone dark. For renos, ostensibly, though a spokesperson for Macaroni Bar was mum on specifics. The restaurant is set to re-open "sometime in March or April."
