November 2010 Openings & Closures: Roast Meats In, Markets Out

Beast and the Hare/Facebook
Beast and the Hare opened this month.
November brought on a rush of restaurants who pushed to open before the holiday bonanza season. Several were lower-priced spinoffs of tony restaurants, while others were additional locations (or relaunches) of familiar names. On the closure side, the more disturbing note was the shuttering of markets in a time when common wisdom says people are cooking at home more.  (All the items on this list were pulled from SFoodie's daily Buzz Machine column.)
