Can we get a restau­rant near Hor­tons field?

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Tim Hor­tons Field precinct

With the new soc­cer ten­ant along with the Tiger-Cats us­ing Tim Hor­tons Field, is it too much to ask that some­one take ini­tia­tive and open up a restau­rant/bistro/gath­er­ing spot in the area? Other than Tim Hor­tons, Sub­way or McDon­ald’s, where is there to go for a bite to eat be­fore or af­ter an event?

Since city coun­cil had no vi­sion of where to place the new sta­dium, pos­si­bly some­one with vi­sion can see the po­ten­tial. If you look at the area that is bor­dered by Main Street, Gage Av­enue, Bar­ton Street, and Sher­man Av­enue, what new de­vel­op­ment was ini­ti­ated by the sta­dium?

Com­pare this with what was de­vel­oped around TD Place in Ot­tawa, and other sport venues across North Amer­ica.

Vi­sion­ar­ies and en­trepreneurs please ap­ply. John Vas­apolli, Hamil­ton
