Food clubs have been an integral part of the Montreal food scene for decades.
Since the 1960s, many Montrealers have been drawn to them for their casual, affordable dining options and friendly atmosphere.
But now, they’re being pushed back as the food club industry continues to struggle.
The city’s largest food club will close at the end of March.
Its closure is expected to force Montrealers to find other places to eat.
And the city’s food scene is also being threatened.
The Montreal Food Club, for example, has lost members as more and more restaurants and bars have started closing and opening their doors in recent years.
The Montreal Food and Wine Club is one of the largest food clubs in the city.
It opened in Montreal in 1962 and now serves more than 2,000 members.
It started as a gathering place for foodies who wanted to eat out but were unable to due to high rents, competition from upscale restaurants and an abundance of cheap restaurants that cater to the growing urban population.
But as the restaurant industry has grown and the population of Montreal has grown, the club has lost customers.
The last time the club hosted an event was in 2013.
And that was in the midst of the Quebec City lockout.
The restaurant industry in Quebec City has been hit hard by the lockout.
As many restaurants closed and bars and clubs closed, the clubs and food bars have also closed.
The loss of membership from both the Montreal Food club and the food industry is what’s driving the city to close its last remaining food club.
The city is planning to open a new food club next year.
