Restaurant Closures in August, Including One That's Converting

Just two places (that we know of) shut up shop for good last month, and even one of those–Hof's Hut in Orange–is being turned into another restaurant, a Lucille's “Rib Shack.” The person I spoke to wouldn't confirm that it'll be a more casual version of the famed barbecue chain (although judging by reports–and the name–it will be), but she did say it will hopefully open some time in October. More info as we have it…

The other casualty is Mesa Grill N BBQ, in Santa Ana.

So hopefully the low count is a sign that the economy is turning around. Fingers crossed.
