Restaurants closed

The coronavirus pandemic has put countless restaurants across Minnesota on the verge of closure.

A combination of the enforced shutdown of dine-in service, in place since mid-March, and the ongoing uncertainty of whether people will return to dining out with the virus still prevalent, has led an increasing number of eateries deciding to shut down for good.

Here's a list of those that have closed since the pandemic arrived. It should be noted that not all have closed because of the pandemic, though most have.
