Bootsie’s Closed

Bootsie’s, the natural fast food spot on 19th Street has closed. A sign in the window claims they will re-open in the first week of 2007 as “a full service restaurant featuring a Continental and Mediterranean menu, including steak and other great creations.”

We here at Foobooz can’t help but feel a tinge of disappointment in Bootsie’s closing, they were the first and probably only place that hung up a write-up we did.

It’s been a bad month for the block of 19th Street between Market and Chestnut as Jolly’s and Pazzo Pizza Bar closed earlier this month. How’s Tragos doing?
