"La Pizzeria Moteur est fermée pour une période indéterminée."
This, the message on the website of the Pizzaiolle reboot as of last week.
While Moteur did not make a huge splash in Outremont, steps from the competitive, branché Laurier strip, the mid-range pizza and microbrew spot was not exactly moribund.
'Good Bet', wrote Sarah Musgrave for The Gazette this past December: "While the back-to-basics simplicity of the food and the retro glammy surroundings are a bit at odds, Moteur was a likable spot, even if it's not putting the local pizza scene into high gear."
Gildas Meneu gave Moteur three stars in his review from March in Voir: "Tout ce qu'on demande à une pizzeria, c'est de réussir ses pizzas. Mission accomplie. Le lieu, sympathique et convivial, plaira à toutes les générations."
