      The local restaurant chainlet Hub has closed its Yaletown location at 1165 Mainland Street.

      The 2,500-square-foot location, which had a seating capacity of 125 patrons, closed on October 10 after a seven-year run (prior to that, it had been a Browns Socialhouse for two years).

      According to Hub's operations director Steve Brisson, this location may relocate to the suburbs and they're in the process of considering new spots.

      The Yaletown closure follows the relocation of the West End location at 1037 Denman Street on May 8. The good news is that spot will move into an even larger venue in North Vancouver at Lonsdale Avenue and 13th Street. The reopening, originally slated for December, has been pushed into the spring.

      The New Westminster location at 344–800 Carnarvon Street remains open and operating as usual. As Brisson had previously informed the Straight, they find that their restaurant fares better in suburban locations.

      The restaurant's menu covers a range of items: small plates, from fish tacos to chicken karaage; burgers, sandwiches, and wraps; salads, from roasted beet salad to West Coast salmon spa; entrées, such as Cajun fettuccini and red wine–braised beef; a range of brunch items, including banana bread French toast, salmon benedict, and huevos rancheros; and wine, cocktails, beer, and other drinks.
