If your town is anything like mine, it has been losing all the good restaurants, left and right. Sure, the crappy mega-chains like Cheesecake Factory aren’t going anywhere, but the interesting, small places – – dying, dying, and dying. Here are some stats.
Of course, the government is making sure the really important stuff gets covered.
Since those doing God’s work need to be protected.
In any case, this awful year is almost over, and people are going to figure — phew – – glad we made it! But the damage is going to last for years and years to come.
All I can say is, if someone has always wanted to open a restaurant in this town, and they’re good at what they do, next year probably wouldn’t be a bad time to think about doing so. Because Palo Altans will always love good food that’s close by.
