Echoing Cookiecrumb's comment on the post a couple days ago where I kept running into closed restaurants, this recession IS getting sad and scary. I had Chopsticks in San Rafael on my list to try, and when Dad said he wanted Chinese for lunch, I thought it was time.
And when we got there, a sign was posted on the door that they closed as of January 1, 2009 due to losing the lease. The bright spot is that the Chew family hopes to open elsewhere in Marin. Losing a lease isn't necessarily because of a recession, however there are just too many closings for any reason recently.
