SAINT-HENRI —  It appears that Juicyyy Lab, the controversial juice and salad bar owned by Corey Shapiro and Chromeo's Patrick 'P-Thugg' Gemayel, has silently bowed out of the neighborhood — just a little over a year since the business opened to a mob of vandals. During a winter-long closure, the "destination business" erected a window-facing whiteboard promising a re-opening for this spring 2016. But now one of Shapiro's employees confirms the closure to Eater and the company's Google status is "permanently closed". While the venture has yet to release a public announcement, this certainly adds new context to this tweet Shapiro posted on Juicyyy's inaugural day.

DOWNTOWN — Mexican co-op eatery Burritoville has served its last burrito. A longtime favourite among neighbouring Concordia students, the business was sold in August 2015 to a group working under the Concordia Food Coalition and it transformed into a solidarity cooperative. However, eight months into renewed operation, the restaurant held an urgent community meeting in which they stated "...the coop is now on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. [sic]" The landlord confirms the prime location is vacant. [EaterWire]

PLATEAU — Stylish social wine club-cum-pizza parlour Watts appears to have closed as quickly as it opened. Its Facebook page expired, its once-consistent Instagram dried up five weeks ago and Eater’s calls to the business go unanswered. [EaterWire]
