Bon Savor Closes

The space formerly occupied by the French/South American restaurant on Centre Street is up for lease.

, which had recently been operating severely curtailed hours, has closed.

The little bistro at the corner of Centre and Pond streets served French and South American-themed cuisine.

According to the JP Gazette, the restaurant's owners had problems getting U.S. visas and are currently in Colombia.

The space at 605 Centre St. is up for lease. Interested persons are asked to email Frantzis@aol.com.

Passersby stopped this afternoon to see the closed property, where tables and chairs have been removed and the Bon Savor signs taken down.

Asked what she'd like to see in it's place, Dana Oliver said she'd love to see a sandwich shop. Ami Novoryta, who was pushing a stroller with her child Mahri inside, said she'd love to see a coffee shop. Both of them noted that down the street toward Hyde Square several coffee shops had failed: and June Bug.

I see a lot of my fellow carnivores out riding bikes, running, hitting the machines at Curtis and playing basketball at Carolina and South. The trough feeders know that regular exercise not only keeps the cholesterol down, but provides the protein needed to build muscle. Plus it's a pretty fun way to get to know people and hang out in the neighborhood.

I always kind of admired the closed-on-Sundays thing, but after this kale debacle, they're on my naughty list, big time. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/05/us/eat-more-kale-t-shirts-challenged-by-chick-fil-a.html

David- yep, seen it, but if you call Ten Tables 24 hrs. ahead of time, they'll do a four-course vegan meal. Insanely good. All jokes about boiling peas aside, it's actually very difficult to do. Just more testament to how good they are at TT...

That's always been a star crossed spot. Think that's the third or fourth business there since I began working on Centre Street back in 2000...

In the 1980's, there was a small, independent pharmacy in this space. They had small "medicinal" bottles of whiskey behind the counter.
