Last updated on: 1/19/22

With new restaurants constantly opening in the Holy City, it’s easy to forget about the many businesses that have closed their doors for good.

To help you keep things straight, Holy City Sinner has compiled a list of restaurants that shuttered in 2021 (click here to see lists from past years).

If you see something that needs to be added to this list, just shoot me an e-mail: christian@holycitysinner.com.
