Changes are afoot in Nicholson Street, Footscray.
Pho Ta (above) and …
… Babylon have both closed.
Asking around, the best I could discover in terms of reasons was along the lines of “problems with landlord”.
These closures are a shame as both joints added diversity to a colourful part of Footscray.
Over in Hopkins, Snow Tree has set itself up for soon-come visit by the CTS team by the agency of a much more attractive fit-out and a much longer menu – including fried chicken!
The Dancing Dog building will be auctioned on Saturday, April 18, at 1pm.
There is a meeting being held tonight (Wednesday, March 25) with a view to making a stab at keeping the property out of the hands of developers.

Meanwhile, up in West Footscray, what was once Gusto will soon become Dosa Corner.
According to the always reliable Barkly Village Facebook page: “Gusto will be replaced by a South Indian Style Restaurant. Ex chef from Dosa Hut across the road.”
We wonder if there will be any point of difference between the new place, Dosa Hut and the neighbourhood’s other Indian eateries.
Truth is, though, Dosa Hut is usually busy so maybe it’s not an issue.
Dosa Hut itself is growing, with the opening of a branch in Tarneit at the Wyndham Village Shopping Centre.
I suspect our Tarneit readers are doing cartwheels.
