Cavalli was hit with a firebomb at 1:45 a.m. The subsequent damage was significant and will likely sink management's plans to re-open in time for Grand Prix weekend. The infamous Downtown restaurant, fresh off a 100 day suspension for a range of violations, had built a comeback narrative on social media around the F1 race—a singularly lucrative event for Montreal supper clubs like Cavalli, Buonanotte and Globe. No arrests have been made in the incident.
