What local restaurants do you miss the most?

Uploaded: Jun 2, 2014

In light of the seemingly endless ebb and flow of restaurant closures and openings on the Peninsula, from years-long standbys to short-lived stints, I've long wanted to ask readers: What local restaurants do you miss the most?

One Palo Alto restaurant's absence I lament is Zao Noodle Bar, which operated out of the 261 University Ave. space now successfully occupied by Oren's Hummus Shop.

I'm sure others miss Zibbibo and Empire Tap Room. I know Menlo Park residents miss the Su Hong sit-down restaurant, though the to-go outpost is still busily serving up its famous general's chicken. (The sit-down restaurant on El Camino is not officially gone, but has been mysteriously closed for many months.)

Perhaps soon-to-be on Stanford students' list is Ike's Place, the San Francisco sandwich cult favorite that's closing mid-June.

What local eateries are on your most-missed list?
