Downtown openings, closings and buildings

We smell a trend. Joining Boneheads in the southern BBQ restaurant scene is Q Smokehouse & Southern Barbeque (1580 Argyle Street, 407-4006), offering ribs, chicken, brisket, wings, sandwiches---including pulled pork, and even Louisiana po-boys---as well as delectable collection of sides, salads and desserts. Plus, it is licensed. In other resto news, Café Chianti, formerly at 5165 South Street but closed since a fire, is moving into 1241 Barrington Street, recently the home of TwelveFortyOne and Bear. Just a couple of doors down, it looks like Cargo & James has shut down for good. A block away, Morris East (5212 Morris Street, 444-7663) is offering a new Saturday lunch menu, featuring wood-fired skillet eggs, housemade bagels and something delicious-sounding called The Carrot Colada (made with freshly juiced organic carrots, rum and Brazilian coconut water). Oh, and Sensationally Yours has opened at 1870 Albermarle Street, offering gems, beads, jewellery and accessories. The business is reachable by phone at 425-1584. And Hatley in the Granville Mall is having a liquidation sale, they’re closing. In other Barrington Street development news, you may remember Shoptalk broke the news of Starfish Properties’ plans for the former Sam The Record Man and Ginger’s Tavern building. Well, we’ve now heard those plans have recently been approved by the city’s Design Review Committee. And the CD Plus building was purchased by Churchill Steel & Timber, a company that also owns the historic Marble Building, housing Greco/Capt. Sub and Lydon Lynch Architects.
