Eddie's Lunch, RIP?

Eddie's Lunch Outdoor SignIt looks like MarinaGrill, formerly Viva’s, formerly Eddie’s Lunch, has closed. At least there’s a “For Rent” sign in the window, and it doesn’t seem to open any longer.

Longtime readers will recall that much of Oliver’s body is made up of raw materials that originated in cheeseburgers, french fries and chicken shwarmas from the various restaurant incarnations of the King-Prince corner, as Catherine and I ate most of our meals there after moving into the neighbourhood the summer she was pregnant. Before that, when we lived at 50 Great George St., around the corner, Eddie’s was our local corner store; those were the days of the Callbeck government, and Eddie’s served, at least for some on the Liberal side, as a sort of Prince St. office.

If you’ve always had the hankering to run a neighbourhood joint, perhaps you should give the space a thought: with the right people at the helm and a good menu, you’ve got a ready-made neighbourhood customer base.

Orginally the sign had stated closed for the season, however I did see the for rent sign. Maybe they are looking for someone to rent the place for the winter months?
