Gloom Takes a Staycation: S.F. Restaurant Closures in July

We don't want to be like all those prognosticators proclaiming the recession is over because people are buying more (foreclosed) houses. But look what happened in July. One restaurant restyled and renamed itself (twice!) and reopened within the month. Another place morphed from a trendy lounge with DJs and eclectic small plates to a trendy jazz supper club with eclectic small plates. And a popular French neighborhood bistro closed, but only in order to do a major remodel. It felt like things were looking up. Breakdown after the jump.
