Why restaurants in Canton close
This morning I was thinking about Tiburzi's and musing about Canton restaurants in general because KristinB. mentioned under an earlier post that she had noticed the Italian grill had turned into yet another sports bar.
We noted several weeks ago that Tiburzi's Cafe in Canton had closed.
As I was walking my dog yesterday, I saw that it's now re-opened as Tiburzi's Sports Bar. Just what Canton doesn't already have enough of: a sports bar!

I tried giving them a call, but so far the new place's number isn't listed and the old number has been disconnected. If anyone knows anything more, please post below.
But KristinB. is right. Doesn't Canton have enough sports bars? It's seems like the neighborhood has been gentrified enough to support some very nice restaurants, but they all tend to disappear. I'm thinking of the Atlantic and Canton's Pearl (which has become Canton Dockside) as well as Tiburzi's. ...
The problem with generalizations like that, of course, is that the reasons they disappeared may not have had anything to do with their clientele.
A good example of this is illustrated by Vicki's comment under yet another post:
My husband is a chef in Canton and when I asked him why Tiburzi's closed he said simply that "Hemry [one of the owners] ran out of money." I know they had some problems with one or more of their past chefs. ::shrugs::
