This will be the year where everything changed. What began as another year, quickly turned to devastation as restaurants across the country closed in an effort to stem the spread of the coronavirus. Predictions say that many more businesses will close permanently even as restrictions are relaxed.
What we do know, is that already 2020 has seen the loss of neighborhood institutions and newcomers alike. Whether it was the loss of the cajeta harboring buns at Dulcería, the gargantuan quesadillas of Flagsmash, the fiery ambition of In Bloom, or the tried and true sushi at Fuji Ya, these places and dishes will be missed.
