Marche MovenPick at 1 Pl Ville Marie... Closed?

I've come across a couple of references to marche movenpick being closed that date back 3 or 4 months. Was this a temporary closure, or is it really gone?

Thanks.

The only thing good about it was the low fat muffins and their convenient location downtown.

Waste of time and money.

Why didn't you like the one there? (I acknowledge, AB, that I also like Crescent St. "...spoken like a true Bostonian...", so I don't always get it.) I got a kick out of the one there and the one in Toronto. (The ones in Europe are - were? - a bit shopworn. Are they all gone?) I was glad when they opened the one here in BOS. It was a different experience to take out-of-town friends to it, when we wanted something casual but not Friday's or the like. But it was bad form here in BOS to tell everyone that it was just this one that had to close. It was always busy, and it looked like yours was, too.

I think the food is average at best, it takes way to much time to wait in line for your oysters, for your salad, for your drink, for you dessert. The price is too high for what it is.

There are so many better alternatives in Montreal, why would you want to go there?

Movenpick is really gone. Glad it's all over.

Second-to-last point, I meant... Do you know if the Marche idea is passe everywhere?

Thanks for the info. It is true that the prices were high, and it took some time to gather all of your food, but I have to admit I liked the ambience of the place, and the variety. I can see why Montrealers wouldn't want to spend their lunch break here, but for me, as a tourist, the place had a certain charm. I'm sorry to hear that it has gone.

A little off topic, I suppose, but where is the one in Boston? Is it similar?

Shame about the muffins though, they were en route to my work from the McGill metro station and I loved those raspberry and choc chip ones, always hot and fresh!
