I never had a fair chance to say goodbye to Plaid Eatery, as this cute, vegetarian-friendly Tempe hangout quietly closed this summer while school was out. Makes me wonder if it was the economy, or what -- and how many other little joints are shutting their doors for good.
Oh yeah, Seoul Garden and Sushi Kee called it quits, too. Tough times for the Tempe dining scene.
