Sad news in the forums for fans of Montreal bagels and greek dips.  Marketa, the upscale (for lack of a better term) “market” on 56th btw. 6+7th from the owners of Milos, has closed for renovations.  It will be interesting to see if they are actually making improvements to the place that will make it more Midtown Lunch’ish (i.e. lower the prices) or just calling it “renovations” until it reopens as something completely different.  Only time will tell…
