Two comfort-food destinations are closing this weekend on opposite sides of town. The Berkshire is cooking up its last porky brunch on Sunday, February 2, after twelve years serving the Stapleton neighborhood. And the Midwestern Saloon is shutting its doors later that night in Berkeley. If you time things right, you could say farewell to both by doing a bacon flight at the Berkshire and grabbing a final basket of cheese curds at the Midwestern, all without missing the first Super Bowl commercial.
Here's our complete list of restaurants and bars opening and closing this week, plus links to our coverage of current and upcoming activity:
Restaurants and Bars Closing this Week*
