No restaurant was safe from The Shutter this year. Even Michelin-starred, Bauer-approved, and celebrity chef-run establishments saw their runs cut short. Here are ten of the saddest and most surprising goodbyes we said this year (or in the cases of Bambino and Txoko, tears we will be shedding within the next few days).
3. Bar Bambino
5. Ana Mandara
7. Hawk's Tavern
8. Café Fanny
9. Criolla Kitchen
Other farewells of note, and some we may not have seen the last of: Sam Wo, Tu Lan, Buck Tavern, Asqew Grill, Estate, Origen, Prime Rib Shabu, Circolo, Dumplings & Buns, La Terrasse
