In the spring, Locust Point's Pazza Luna closed quietly, as it always does every year. In December, it was still closed. Abacrombie closed in April after what the owners said was extensive water damage to the Midtown-Belvedere property and never reopened.
Restaurant Sabor cleared out in the middle of a July night, nonplusing fans of Roddy Domacasse's Timonium restaurant.
Within days of each other, Centro Tapas closed in Riverside and Jerry Pellegrino's long-running Corks closed, after 14 years, in Federal Hill, both without notice.
