What's the Hub Bub, Pub?

Good article on the turnover on Austin Street in the week's Forest Hills ledger by Alex Christodoulides (thanks for the mention by the way).

Money quote:

Forest Hills Chamber of Commerce President Leslie Brown confirmed that Rouge closed but said it is only one of several recent and upcoming closures in the area.

"Rouge closed. UJ's Luncheonette closed Sunday," Brown said of two neighboring eateries. She added that along Austin Street, The Wine Gallery's space at 72-27 Austin St. had been sold and the new tenant would likely be a pub.

A cool pub would be perfect at the Wine Gallery site. Let's hope they shoot for upscale.
