Piato Estiatorio on West 4th closes its doors for good


Scout Magazine reported earlier today that two-year old nouveau Greek restaurant Piato Estiatorio has closed its doors.

It turns out Kitsilano wasn’t all that into Greek chow this year (neither modern nor ancient). Piato has just closed on West 4th. As you may have already heard, the venerable Parthenon food store is also closed, due to another suspicious fire. Sniff. I can’t help but wonder if this trend has to do with all the birds falling from the sky in the States and the millions of crabs washing up dead in England. Is the End near? Maybe John Cusack and Woody Harrelson were off by just a year. Silver lining a) I’m insured b) a new Italian joint run by an Italian (hooray!) is due in the Piato space, sometime in late February-ish. A photographic jog of your memory after the jump. RIP…

    What about The Smoking Dog? I walked by yesterday and all of the furniture was cleared out.

    @Andrew – we checked in with the Smoking Dog and apparently it’s just a renovation – http://twitter.com/TheSmokingDog
