Openings & Closings 2010: The Final Reckoning

  • Farmhaus was a highlight among the 2010 openings.

A snowy day is the perfect time to look back over our archive of restaurant openings and closings -- and notes on restaurants that we forgot to include on our lists of openings and closings -- and draw the obvious conclusion: A lot of restaurants opened and closed in 2010.

Here, to the best of our ability, is a list of all the restaurants that opened, closed, relocated or (in a few cases) opened and closed last year.

We won't claim that this list is complete. Which is why, as always, we ask for your help. If you know of a restaurant that opened, closed or relocated in 2010 that isn't on this list, please leave a comment, and we'll add it as we go.
