A number of LA restaurants — high-end and casual — are permanently closing during the pandemic, and each closing affects families of owners and employees. The closures ripple out to all the different industries that service restaurants.
Good Food host Evan Kleiman discusses these restaurants — and pays tribute to them.
Also, many of these chefs have other restaurants that are still open, which listeners could continue to support.
