2009 Restaurant Roll-Call

The empty Champagne bottles have been carted away to recycling, but before you forget your new year's resolutions, we thought we'd remind you of the restaurants that have come and gone in 2009 (and in some cases, both came and went). We've compiled the 2009 openings and closings from A--hello, Aamchi Pao--to Z, goodbye, Zona Rosa.
