Closed Until Further Notice: Chit Chat #6

Do you have any stories about neighborhood restaurant closings that you want to share? Do you have restaurants in your neighborhood that have closed? Or a favorite place that’s struggling to stay open, cutting back hours or taken some other preventive measures to try to stay open?

I want to hear about it.

Neighborhood restaurants, independent restaurants, the places that define our cultures and make our communities vibrant, the places we celebrate a softball game win (or loss), go for date night, propose marriage or recognize a colleague for decades of service are closing at an alarming rate. I am a co-founder of the Independent Restaurant Coalition. Go to and see what we are up to, and please spread the word. Help Save Restaurants.”
