Restaurant closings in 2010: The good, the bad and the ugly

The year 2010 may go down in history as having the shortest-lived “closing” in local restaurant history: Tom Johnson’s Sushi House “closed” on a Saturday night in October (well, that’s what the staff told the customers for much of that week) and “re-opened,” without fanfare, the following Tuesday. Fans of the restaurant were thrilled with the news, so I suppose that’s all that mattered in the end.

There were fans of other restaurants that didn’t get such positive news, including those who loved iconic dining spots like the 78-year-old Bamboo Hut in Independence and the 52-year-old Main Street Inn in Grandview.
