Thanks to SF Gate and KRON4 for letting us know about Yelp’s recent economic impact study which reported a rather grim picture for businesses in the Bay Area.

The study from March 1 to July 10 showed that the San Francisco metro area (SF-Oak-Hayward) has seen 369 permanent restaurant closures. Among those restaurants closed forever include Velvet Cantina, It’s Tops, Nopalito (Inner Sunset), Louis’ Diner, ICHI Sushi, Locando, Toy Boat Dessert Cafe, Dobbs Ferry and many more.
