Openings and Closings

2009 Restaurant Roll Call - Openings

We all know 2009 was sort of a strange year for restaurants. On one hand, there were dozens of significant openings, places that really added to our overall scene. On the other, there was more attrition than a super-long game of Risk.

Here's a comprehensive run down, from A to Z of what opened in 2009. We'll follow it up tomorrow with a complete list of closures.

And if you know of a restaurant we missed, please leave a comment.
