The Eaton Centre's Mr Greenjeans has closed
The closure marks the end of a 34 year run.

It’s not been a good week for the city’s iconic businesses.

Following the closure of Andy Poolhall, the Eaton Centre’s Mr Greenjeans is closing as well. The iconic restaurant was in business for 34 years.

A note at the front of Mr Greenjeans says, “It’s been our pleasure to serve you, your family, friends and grandchildren! Sadly all good things come to an end. Thank you again for being part of this wonderful journey!”

As of the publishing of this article, neither the restaurant’s nor the shopping mall’s management have given any reason for the closing. That said, mall security guards interviewed by CityNews described the move as “sudden”.

Mr Greenjeans was started by a group of Bay St. lawyers and was originally conceived of as a florist shop. Partway through its life, ownership decided to get into the restaurant business. Its owners probably had no idea they were about to create one of city’s most iconic restaurants. And although Mr Greenjeans became known as something of a tourist trap in later years, the restaurant was regularly visited and enjoyed by locals. [via CityNews]
