      Yet another vegetarian restaurant is shuttering in Vancouver—this time it’s Mount Pleasant eatery The Arbor.

      Co-owners Scott Lewis, Shira Blustein, and Paul McCloskey announced the closure on social media yesterday (March 19), noting that the spot’s final dinner service will be April 7.

      For nearly eight years, The Arbor was a pillar for casual vegetarian eats in the city, living by the ethos of providing “real food for comfort” through sustainably- and locally-sourced ingredients. The spot was known for its casual vegetarian dishes like poutine, the Arburger, and the famous Southern fried artichoke sandwiches. 

      “No cliches. No hard feelings. We think vegetables are rad, and it’s been our privilege to serve them to our community,” the team wrote in an Instagram post. “We’ll be closing our doors April 7th and we’d love to see you before we turn the light off.”

      The Arbor is still taking reservations until its closing day here.

      Sibling restaurant The Acorn remains open just up the street.
