Sad news to report today - and it probably won't be the only day that stuff like this will be reported in the near future. The Inquirer reports that two Philly restaurants have announced that they are shutting their doors for good due to the Coronavirus.
They even add that "announced" is the key word here - saying, "many restaurants that had intended to close temporarily will not reopen, though their owners are declining to state this formally."
Over the weekend, we learned of Mad River, and Farmicia officially shutting their doors for good.
Farmicia opened back in 2004 on 3rd Street near Market in Old City. Mad River Bar & Grille was infamous in Manayunk, and has been around since 2008.
Check out their official closing statements below:
