Recent Restaurant Closures

The Valley's lost some favorites lately.

A few high-profile restaurants closed for business just within the last week or two -- Tapino, Fine's Cellar, and the historic El Chorro Lodge.  

Mesa's Grill El Quetzal, a Guatemalan joint in the strip mall across from Mekong Plaza, is gone.

And two established Scottsdale nightlife destinations, Sugar Daddy's and Six Lounge, are also kaput.

Are things going to get worse before they get better? Summer's just getting started . . .
