Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill and Gadsby's Bar American both appears to have closed in Columbia.
Garbanzo was part of a small chain, and it definitely drummed up a devoted following. Folks have been emailing and posting in comments for a while, but I've been to crazed to even post.
Gadsby's Bar American had replaced Greystone Grill just off Rte 100. This was Robert Gadsby's restaurant. People have lauded the place for an innovative bartender, but I had heard so many disappointed reports that I kept postponing a visit in the hope that they would get it together. Now the Web site is gone, and the phone has been temporarily disconnected.
I'm always bummed when people work hard on a restaurant and see it close. This morning, Carole posted a comment on the Facebook page saying the Korshi buffet in Columbia has closed as well. No one answered the phone when I called, but I don't know the situation. Does anyone know the story? Does anyone know any of these stories?
