R.I.P. Dusty’s

Via Repeat Atlanta, I learned that Dusty’s on Briarcliff has closed.  Apparently they lost their lease after 27 years. I haven’t been to Dusty’s in maybe five years, and before that one time it had probably been 8 years or so since I had been.  So this certainly isn’t a “aww, I wish they could have stayed in business, what is the world coming to” posts.  If I cared that much, clearly I would have eaten there more.

There is still a twinge of sadness in the news for me.  When I was in little league, my dad would always take me to Dusty’s for dinner after a game.  I recall the food as pretty good, but when you are 10 I’m not sure you can appreciate good food.  Dusty’s was as old as I am, although I didn’t realize that until now.  Anyway, I thought I should mark the occassion a little.
