Historically Bloody Month Shuts Several Bay Eateries

One of the first restaurants to fall was Baraka, which was open from 2003 to 2009.

For the restaurant industry, January is often a rough month regardless of the economy, but given the times, the past 31 days have been predictably bloody for local businesses. As we turn the calendar, here's hoping the survivors can continue to stay afloat. So, without further ado, we present the fallen restaurant from a messy month:

· Atrium
· Azie
· Bar on Castro
· Baraka
· Breezy's
· Cafe Revolution
· Cafe de la Paz · Cetrella
· Chopsticks
· Deep Sushi
· Geoffrey's
· Jojo
· Joseph Smith
· La Vinoteca
· La Taqueria (South Bay location)
· Laurel's
· Lola's
· Lou's at the Square
· Marche on the Square
