“We have been operating at a net monthly loss for a considerable amount of time," says veteran restaurateur Craig Caldwell, who purchased White Fence Farm from Wilson in late 2014 with partner Tom Piercy. "Efforts to create a profitable operation were not successful, and we can no longer operate in this capacity.”

After the closure was announced in October, though, crowds flocked to White Fence Farm. If the place could have done that amount of business all year, Caldwell says, keeping the restaurant open might have been an option.

Instead, White Fence Farm won't see the start of 2019, adding to a list of longtime restaurants closing this year that includes Govnr's Park, Marlowe's, the Paramount Cafe and the Old Spaghetti Factory. What do you think of these closures? Post a comment or email [email protected]
