Best Restaurants We Miss 

Tombstones Aplenty

Amid so many restaurant arrivals, it was also a year of goodbyes, as we bid adieu to some of our favorite—or at least oldest—eateries. Rest in peace, Nola's and your sweet artery-clogging chivito. Thanks for the memories, Nick & Rudy. You too, New Orleans Manor. Sorry you couldn't stay longer, Bethel Ethiopian, with your cheery veggie-friendly buffet. Chimalles, your burrito bar was backwards—literally, backwards, as in for left-handed people. La Hacienda Marisqueria? We miss you, but we never really liked you like we love your sister, La Hacienda Taqueria. Crescent Café, you have been eclipsed. As for The Trace, it is now without one. Fire & Ice, you fizzled. Most Wanted Pizza? Apparently not. Edisto? Closed? Is it so? Sweetgrass Smokerie, we loved you that Saturday night on the patio when the dulcet tunes of the Grand Ole Opry mingled with the fumes from the smoker. But alas, nothing—not even brisket—lasts forever. —CARRINGTON FOX
