Economy Takes a Bite Out of Google's Free Food

Tech giant closes two restaurants

Not even Google can stomach the economic downturn.

Jean-Claude Balek's Basic Deli and 5ive will close on friend to save the company money. Google will sublease the space, which has already been vacated after the company let go of thousands of contractors recently.

"That's business," Balek told ValleyWag.
