December's restaurant round-up saw more activity in openings than closures. A notable case of the latter is Korner Grill, a Persian place at The District in Tustin that took over the long-failed pie venture called The Cravery, using pretty much the old eatery's tables and logo'd chairs. It, too, is now history.
And though Tustin's Curtain Call Dinner Theater qualifies as a November closure, we commemorate the 30-year-old institution's passing here.
