Grumman 78, a Montreal institution renowned for its taco truck and St-Henri restaurant, is closing its doors after 10 years in business.

“With love and gratitude in our hearts, we are here to announce that Grumman 78 is closing its doors and hanging up its tires,” the restaurant said this afternoon on its Facebook page.

“2020, with all its challenges, has allowed us to evolve and transform, but it has also crippled our beloved business. Our taco garage and our inimitable 1978 GMC Grumman have ceased operations with immediate effect. We’ll take a well-deserved break and see where the wind takes us – maybe on another adventure?

In the Facebook post, Grumman 78 referred to 10 years of organizing “weddings, birthdays, family dinners and funerals. We prepared your evenings at home, your lunches at the office, we were there for your lazy Sunday dinners, your date nights and your Christmas parties. We also changed the laws in Montreal to usher in a new era of food trucks and culinary ingenuity.

The founders, Hilary McGown, Marc-André Leclerc and Gaëlle Cerf, also thanked its staff, customers and suppliers.

“Grumman, in all his glory, has prospered because of your generosity and enthusiasm, love and loyalty. We will all miss you.
