More black holes
I see the 20 Mile House is closed. Owners say it's for remodeling, but the phone's disconnected. On the corner of Columbia and Montgomery up in Landen, it has been a number of things. I think I first went there when it was the Hyde Park Steakhouse, then a seafood place called Blake's, then back to 20 Mile House, which is what it had been to begin with.
I wouldn't be surprised if it's having a hard time: there's the absolute monster presence of all kinds of chain restaurants in the Fields-Ertel/ Mason-Montgomery Roads areas.
Interesting to note, however, that over on Mason-Montgomery, several chain restaurants have closed over the last year or so at Deerfield Towne Centre and nearby. Romano's Macaroni Grill followed Red Star Tavern and Nothing but Noodles. They each had individual reasons for failing.
(Rumors that Claddagh Irish Pub is closing were denied)
