Back in June, when we listed the Ten Best Restaurants in the Golden Triangle
, Gallo di Nero
was one of our favorites. But the restaurant closed its doors last week -- quickly and quietly. "The reasons for the quick closing are as follows," a spokesperson said.

If these extremely talented guys couldn't make it in that spot maybe it can't be done.
