This is something we've been seeing a lot lately, and we're not okay with it - restaurants closing all around Grand Rapids.

Today we learned that Mandarin Chinese Restaurant on 28th St. has closed for good.

We were alerted to the closing after seeings a Facebook post showing a sign on the door thanking customers for their patronage over the years. A quick check of their Facebook page shows that the restaurant has actually be closed for about a week and a half.

This closing follows on the heels of several other local favorites including The Black Heron, Pizza Ranch, and BD's Mongolian Grill.
