RESTAURANT CLOSINGS are listed on this page for restaurants that have been reviewed on either OK Gourmet or Steve's Gastronomic Home Page.

Restaurants with a notation of (reported closed) are ones I have not been able to confirm.

In some cases the year the restaurant is listed as closing is my best estimate.

This list includes restaurants that closed in 2010 or later. Some other closed restaurants are still listed on the old web site: Steve's Gastronomic Home Page.

Some older restaurants are listed in the side column of the individual index pages. These reviews are being kept in the web site's permanent archive either because they may be important to the area's restaurant history or because I may wish to discuss them in the current reviews.
