Italian restaurant Garibaldi's served its last crispy flounder in 2010. The Goodie House is now a Starbucks. No one will ever take a prom date to Carolina's again. Celia's on Beaufain Street closed their doors in 1999, but still produces frozen lasagna. There are no more romantic butterflies at La Fourchette. The dancers are gone from the Garden and Gun Club. The infamous post-Spoleto hangout Marianne's is now a barbecue joint (as one reader proclaimed: And now we have a Sticky Fingers instead of Bananas Foster ...") And many still weep over losing bars like Cumberland's, The Village Tavern, and Raval.
Restaurants come and restaurants go, but it's always fun to remember the good times. Leave your favorite memories of long lost lamented establishments in the comments.
