Ben's Demolished for Boutique Hotel

The beloved Ben's delicatessen in downtown Montreal has been demolished to make way for a new boutique hotel. The attractions of the building itself may have been overstated in the attempt to preserve it. Still, its passing is worth noting. Fortunately, much of the interior was salvaged and will be preserved at the McCord museum.

Damn! And I never got to try it when I was last in Montreal in July 2007. This is like when the Second Avenue Deli shut down at the end of 2005, although at least Second Avenue Deli reopened on 33rd St between Lexington and 3rd Avenues.

It take it there aren't any plans for a new Ben's as of now.
