Residents of Belize City and visitors should all be familiar with the name Macy's Restaurant. After all, it's been open for 30 years - all of it spent at the same location on Bishop Street.
It's many years of service make it a landmark, but what makes it an institution is its quality: consistent, top grade Belizean cuisine flavored with soul.
But, reports are that the famous Macy's may be closing down by the end of the month.
We visited with the owner Mavis Pitamba, known as Ms. May today and she told us that up to last week she was dead set on doing it - due to poor business - and the fact that she can no longer open at night due to crime.
But today she told us she is re-thinking it because of the outpouring of requests from faithful patrons who are begging her to reconsider.
She says she may consider relocating to a location on the northside - but she hasn't decided yet.
She'll make up her mind on that by mid-month.
The restaurant is famous not only for its food but for its clientele: a number of international celebrities have stopped in for taste of the famous Macy's flavor including Tupac Shakur, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Chill Mitchell, Brooke Shields, and former Barbadian PM, Owen Arthur.
We'll keep following it and let you know.
