The end of the year is a time for reflection. As 2016 comes to an end, we take stock of all the things that happened in the past year... essentially, it's list time. has put together a list of all the West Michigan restaurants that closed in 2016. More than 30 local eateries shut their doors for good this year. 

I have to say, I was pretty sad to see Fat Johnny's leave downtown Grand Rapids. Known for their cheesesteaks, Fat Johnny's was also one of the only places I knew in downtown with a salad bar- and man, I love a good salad bar. Lunchtime just isn't the same anymore.

Are there any of these places that you were super sad to see go? Any other restaurants that are no longer with us that you know of?
