Mad Dog & Beans, a casual-upscale Mexican restaurant, with a "theme based on the Mexican Revolution", seems to have continued this pattern. After just over a year, the eatery has closed its doors.
Reader Demy just wrote in to say:
"Last Saturday night I headed to Mad Dog & Beans, the Mexican spot on Smith, for dinner. Had some great, authentically Mexican (not Tex-Mex) meals there. But a sign on the door said "Closed". No note, no explanation. Any idea if they're still in business?"
When I walked by yesterday, there were boxes stacked on the table closest to the door and the place looked as though it had been cleared out. It definitely seems defunct.
Mad Dog & Beans is just two doors down from Cubana Café, which also just closed recently.
Across the street, two storefronts sit empty after Savoia, the Italian eatery closed a while back.
Perhaps the long cold winter has kept people at home and away from restaurants, which may have contributed to these closings. What do you think?
