let's see how many i can come up with:

- Grandma's Pancake house, which is now IHOP on 440; my classmate's family owned it so maybe i was biased

- when i was a kid, there was a pharmacy in journal square named Liss, and the cafeteria there was pretty good

- plankboard inn

can i include fast food places:

- roy rogers on 440; hell, all roy rogers
- Gino's/KFC on west side ave
- Church's fried chicken on summit ave and sip
- Blimpie base in journal square (the original location with a balcony)

I miss Pronto Cena also. When they were "on," Pronto Cena did some of the best vodka penne I've ever eaten. The wine list had its highlights too...

But ... there always seemed to be problems. I remember calling up one night and the woman on the end of the phone seemed unwilling to take a reservation because it was the weekend!

And there was a blonde waitress there who always seemed to have a black eye, like she had a "bad" boyfriend.

I had some great times at Pronto Cena. Took a couple of girlfriends there...so I am biased...

Was sad when I called up to book a table and found it had gone. The only restaurant in Paulsu Hook that somehow failed to make money....

I'll chime in with another vote for Cosimo's.

La Primavera-- always empty and all the cats used for deliveries cars dealer plates. Thought that was odd but they had great brick-oven pizza. I'll try Ox one of these days...

For our family, 23 years in JC (out of Manhattan), the place was Kiki’s on Second St.
It’s taken 20 years to match the quality, price, service, and atmosphere of this restaurant.
They got caught up in the economics of the ‘87 reval, tried to adjust by adding a liquor license and music, and wound up losing their original customers with not enough support from the change…We miss them, though we do finally have alternatives

Nothing gold can stay.



YES! The animals on Easter. Dominic Santana did some great things---I saw him at Hard Grove just the other day as I walked by. Does he still have a hand in the operation? Is he still owner? And most importantly...does LISA still work there?!?

And to hear that they took down Celia Cruz painting is upsetting. Now it's just so generic in there. They could have made kitschy Cuban work for the upscale if they wanted to.

The "old" Hard Grove...does anyone remember going in there late on any given night and there was mist pouring from smoke machines, tables were pushed aside, lights were flashing and the music (sometimes just "hot 97" radio) was LOUD?

This was back when there was a big controversy about allowing dance b/c it did not have a "Club" license, etc. 1999?

I miss that...even their old stinky, crappy bathroom.

With the cost of gas and general living expenses increasing, we will be missing a lot more restuarants as they slowly close due to poor patronage.

Many people seconded this post, so I wanted to offer this update. I was in the mall Saturday (for Batman, naturally), and saw that Hale and Hearty Soups is now on the food court. For anyone who knows how fantastic their soups are, this is great news. Sure, it's a lunch spot, not a dinner spot, but it's now the best food in the mall by far and a great addition to the downtown area.

Jules on West Side Ave was home-cooked, family-owned, unpretensious greatness.

Get Real, jules on westside ave was aweful, ate there once and had Heartburn for a month...

The one on Franklin st in the Heights was much better.

YIKES....

That wouldn't be your heights-bred bias showing, now would it?

Amen to that !

The owner died the the business was sold to a foreign investor. That was a good place I'm not sure if many people appreciated the quality and value it conveyed.


Yeah, some Asians had purchased it and tried to Infuse some California rolls, notwithstanding a few weeks later the place had been padlocked by the sheriff for unpaid debts.....

What a Shame.
