Entrées And Exits
Ay carramba! Tortilla Flat, which recently re-opened after closing during the "Winooski Project," is shuttered again. A call to the telephone number during dinner hours yielded nothing but lots of ringing - no voice mail . . . Five Spice Café is closed, too, after a fire last Saturday morning. No word yet on whether new owner Sam Palmisano will rebuild. He bought and renovated the restaurant at the end of last year. Damage is estimated at $750,000 . . . On the same Church Street block, Tilley's Café is open in the space formerly occupied by Coyote Café. See the food feature in this issue . . . The "little chef statue" that used to sit outside Souza's when it was on Main Street is now in the window of the space formerly occupied by Glori Nori, at the corner of St. Paul and Main. A preview of coming churrascaria?
