A popular Montreal restaurant has been bought out by the corporation that owns the chain of La Cage aux Sports resto-bars.

Moishes has been acquired by the Sportscene Group Inc.

The deal includes not only the landmark steakhouse on St. Laurent Boulevard but all Moishes' trademarks, branding, and products sold at major supermarkets and food retailers.

In a statement, the company says longtime owner Lenny Lighter will continue to manage operations at the restaurant, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year.
