And the hits keep on comin'.

First the D'Agostino shutters, set to become a CVS. Next, two independent Montague restaurants close their doors. Now, word has it, that another chain is coming to the Heights - not as nefarious sounding as a Quiznos or Chili's, but a chain/franchise operation nonetheless: Ben & Jerry's.

The Vermont pair tried to make it on Court Street in Cobble Hill a while back. And, now it looks like they'll be re-emerging on Atlantic Avenue.

All Gothamist can say is: We miss Peter's Ice Cream! Can't remember the last time we had some of Pete's homemade Grapenut Ice Cream...And, can't imagine that B&J's Chubby Hubby will really fill the void.
