Comings and Goings 2009

Comings and Goings 2009

 

Making my annual list of restaurants that closed during the past year, I decided to also include a list of restaurants that premiered as well.  I make no pretense that this is the definitive list. I find it interesting that the list of new restaurants is almost as long as the list of those that closed.  I hope this is a good sign for 2010.

About This Blog

Dan CurdI found my interest in writing by accident. My training and first job was as a graphic designer. Unemployed, the only employment I could find in advertising at that time was as a copywriter. Somehow, I convinced Richard Newman & Associates to hire me. Later I learned they were desperate. Madison has been my home off and on since 1957 (nonstop for the past 31 years). I write about food, which I love. – Dan Curd
