There has been what feels like a seismic shift in the restaurant line-up in the area this winter.

Between storefronts closing, locations shuffling and new arrivals on the scene, it’s hard to keep track.

With 25% of businesses in Canada missing the January 18 deadline for the Canada Emergency Business Account loan repayment, now is a good time to get out and support local.

Here’s what we know has changed.

In late 2023, Moontown Market closed its doors on Lincoln St. Dory Mates, who serves up some of the freshest seafood around, has moved into the market’s old space with a cafe component added to their business. 

Old Black Forest Restaurant was also a victim to 2023. That space is getting revamped by The Hungry Traveler Cafe who will be serving up halal grab-and-go foods starting mid-February.

With the Indian Path Bridge only reopening late last year after being closed since December 2021, Bayport Pub served its final customers in July 2023, closing due to low traffic. The building sold in November 2023 and the new owners will be reopening in the spring with Neapolitan style pizza and wines.

Sushify South Shore is making the move from Wileville to a spot in Lunenburg in summer 2024. They announced the closure of their Bridgewater area location at the end of 2023 on Instagram and teased the new spot with “#lunenburgseeyousoon”

The Lunenburg location for Burger King announced its permanent closure on Facebook at the end of January.
