Three surprise closings at the mall
There were three surprise closings at Westfield Montgomery Mall this weekend as Blaze Pizza, Lobster ME and Jamaican Mi Crazy all disappeared between Friday night and Monday morning. Many had predicted the downfall of Lobster ME, where high prices and a limited menu had failed to draw crowds since the Las Vegas-based chain joined the Dining Terrace 18 months ago. Jamaican Mi Crazy, a food truck-turned-restaurant from a local entrepreneur, never even reached its first anniversary. But the big surprise here was the loss of Blaze Pizza, which earned high marks for its food — and had become something of a local favorite and hub for community fundraisers — since its 2014 opening on the mall’s lower level. We’ll have further details on these closings, and much more, in our regularly scheduled issue this Thursday (5/26).
