Le Comptoir Quietly Packs Up Its Charcuterie And Wine — And Other Closures [Updated]

Including a Mile End BYOB shutter, and a St-Henri café that isn’t coming back

Le Comptoir

MILE END — Le Comptoir Charcuteries et Vins on St-Laurent has closed its doors with little notice. Eater tipsters have given mixed reports on whether it’s temporary (for renovations) or permanent — in any case, the restaurant didn’t announce the shutter, and calls to it have gone unanswered. The restaurant — known for cured meats and wine, as the name suggests, received a spot on enRoute magazine’s annual list of Canada’s Best New Restaurants back in 2011 after opening, and in 2014 opened a charcuterie counter on Amherst, La Réserve, which remains open. Eater has reached out for details on the closure. UPDATE — An Eater reader reports that, in an ominous sign, La Réserve also appears to be closed.

MILE END — Just a few blocks north on St-Laurent, BYOB restaurant À L’Os, known in part for seafood, boudin, and marrow, has papered over windows. It held down its Mile End location for over a decade — no word on the reason for the shutter.

ST-HENRI — Notre-Dame coffee and toast spot Buck15’s closure is not new — but it was initially meant to be temporary. That’s no longer the case: the owner has moved away from Montreal, and the café will not be returning

NDG — In case you missed it, Monkland neighbourhood spot and beloved brunchery Prohibition closed suddenly last week — full details are here.
