Jean-Talon Market area 2012

lagatta | May 5, 2012 10:22 AM

I don't see a thread on this topic for this year - please correct if there is one. There only seems to be a thread limited to the market itself. This thread, like its predecessors in earlier years, also encompasses the adjoining streets and anywhere easily walkable from the market - basically Petite Italie, southwestern Villeray, the Asian shops around St-Denis and Jean-Talon etc.

As per some earlier questions, Jos et Basile is definitely closed and empty - there is some kind of work going on in there and there was no for sale or for rent sign, so I'll be watching for anything new.

Also, restaurant Babbo has closed. It was located at one of those "cursed" spots - the corner of St-Dominique and Bélanger (note that Bélanger west of Drolet is NOT the direct westward continuation of the long rue Bélanger that runs to Galeries d'Anjou - that is Mozart. Bélanger only runs a few blocks, from St-Laurent to Henri-Julien.
