- First up is someplace that’s been closed for a while…Old Baldy Brewing Company in downtown Upland. I used to frequent the Old Baldy Brewery when I lived in Claremont. In fact, I think I still have an empty growler from there in a box somewhere at home…perhaps it’ll be a collector’s item someday. Click here to read David’s post.
- Also on the list are three Victoria Gardens eateries: Nathan’s Hot Dogs, Sisley Italian Kitchen and Wapango. Of the three, I’d only been to Sisley, and only a couple of times, but it was really good. I’ll miss it. Wapango had only been open since July, according to David. During his visit this summer, he ranked it in the top half-dozen of Vicky G’s restaurants. Read his post here.
- Lastly, from Wendy Leung’s RC Now, we learn that another Rancho restaurant, Bobby Baja’s, shut down mid-December. I never made it to Bobby Baja’s, but I’ve been to the Souplantation in that same center (Vineyard Avenue & Foothill Boulevard) more times than I can remember. It just seems like the food there is somehow better than the one here in San Bernardino. Strange, isn’t it? Read Wendy’s post here.
Things are not looking good over in the West Valley. Let’s hope that things will turn around in 2009 and that we’ll at least see more restaurant openings than closings.
In the meantime, please support your favorite restaurants. You don’t want them to suffer the same fate as the ones mentioned above.
