Each day brings news of another restaurant or two or more that has decided to shutter or not reopen. Though this is a list that no one really wants to read, we feel it’s important to keep MHOTC readers up-to-date and we wanted to create a single page you could easily reference.
While we can’t do as comprehensive a job as our peers at Westword or BusinessDen, we can keep you informed of the larger or more well-known dining spots, be they chains or independent eateries, that won’t be dishing out your favorites any longer.
We’ll update this page as best as we can. If you hear of a place that’s closing or not reopening, drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our list has the latest closures at the top, which will make it easier to update.
