Some major openings, some sad closings: Our restaurant roll call for December

The last hurrah at the Pearl Street Grill.

There's always a lot of action at the end of the year, and 2011 was no exception: After last call early on December 31, the Pearl Street Grill closed its doors, after almost thirty years in business. The Pearl isn't gone for good, though. It will reopen in 2012 -- but in a different location on the street, with a definite concept, and perhaps even a new name.

Read on for the rest of the restaurant action in December:
