Bummer: A collection of restaurant closings

Tietra, a Dmitri's, A Little Cafe, a Triumph Brewing - all closing their doors.

Bummer: A collection of restaurant closings

What goes up must come down.

As I chronicle the multitude of restaurant openings, I must also acknowledge the closings. (Trust me: It's easier to get info about a restaurant's opening than it is about its closing.)

These closings should in no way be construed as a sign of the apocalypse.

Tietra, the gently used bar-restaurant at the 231 S. 15th St. (basically across from the Good Dog), is dark and its windows are papered over. 

Feb. 15 will be the finale of Tacconelli's in Maple Shade pending its move to a larger space. (The location is unrelated to the Port Richmond original.)

Feb. 16 is the last night of A Little Cafe in Voorhees as chef-owner Marianne Cuneo-Powell shifts gears.

Dmitri's on Fitler Square will mark its finale on March 1 as he looks to relocate in the face of a rent increase. Dmitri Chimes says he is selling his liquor license. The other Dmitri's locations are unaffected.
