Popular Hamilton restaurant Bulli Social is fully operational again, a week after a century-old Jacaranda tree was knocked down during Hurricane Humberto, resulting in the temporary closure of the Queen Street eatery.

The massive tree provided shade on the restaurant’s patio.

At the height of the Category 3 storm last Wednesday evening, it crashed into the wrought iron fence separating the restaurant from Queen Elizabeth Park, pushing the fence down with its weight.

The impact of some larger branches took the tops off concrete pillars that are part of the fencing, while some smaller branches came to rest on the restaurant’s roof.

On Friday, a Corporation of Hamilton work crew moved in to assess the tricky removal job, and then set to work. The job was completed on Saturday, said the restaurant’s owner-operator, Tyler Nearon.

The “gourmet burger, poutine and dawg shoppe” reopened for takeout orders on Monday, and was fully operational yesterday, Mr Nearon said.
