Reader Ernie Alvater writes this week:
“Any idea what happened to the Spires Restaurant at Foothill & Haven in Rancho Cucamonga? It was open and busy last week, then suddenly it was closed with a sign in the window reading ‘OUT OF BUSINESS.’ It’s sad, because they had a very nice staff and very reasonable prices. Maybe that’s what did them in — the reasonable prices, not the nice staff!”
I have no inside info but would take the sign at its word. Must have been busy, but not busy enough. (There’s still a Spires at Vineyard and Holt in Ontario.)
Fun fact: The multi-sided white building on Foothill west of Haven began as a Spires, became Foothill Grill in 2000 and reverted to a Spires in 2007. Question: Can we get Foothill Grill back?
