Openings and Closings

Restaurant Closings in 2012 in Broward and Palm Beach Counties: The Year in Review

You can't look back on a year without taking a moment to reflect on those who won't forge ahead to greet 2013. At Clean Plate Charlie, that means a roundup of bars and restaurants that shuttered their doors in 2012 in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Some (Charcuterie Too) are probably mourned more than others (Baja Beach Club anyone?). After the jump, find a list of 2012 closures, including a handful of places that both opened and closed this year. Know of something we missed? Let us know in the comments.
