River House – Palm Beach Gardens 

The 11,000-square-foot, Key West-style restaurant which was a longtime favorite with diners who enjoyed its water views closed its doors April 27. Last fall, Frank Callander struck a deal to sell the River House, after operating the upscale steak and seafood restaurant since 1984.

The eatery will continue to live on as a dining destination: BrickTop’s, an upscale, casual chain, will lease the property, BrickTop’s founder Joe Ledbetter confirmed last month.

Hudson at Waterway East – Delray Beach

The waterfront restaurant, Hudson, which opened in December 2014, was in business for less than two years. Hudson dubbed itself as a “speakeasy,” a gastropub-type lounge with high-top seating, a restaurant and outside bar. The limited menu featured seafood, meats and “comfort food,” such as crab mac ‘n cheese.

Broward County-based Blue Moon Fish Co. thought it had hooked a deal to take over the shuttered Hudson, but the deal fell through this week.

Taco Vida, located off Village Boulevard in West Palm Beach, closed its doors this month. The restaurant opened in CityPlace in 2010, but moved the Village Commons shopping center West Palm Beach two years later. In their Facebook post, restaurant officials said recent construction at the shopping center hurt business.

According to Yelp, the neighborhood pizzeria, Francesca’s in Royal Palm Beach has closed. A 2014 Palm Beach Post dining review had this to say ‘pizza with a perfect crust.  It’s lighter and more crispy, topped with a trio of cheeses and your choice of veggies and meats.

Stir Crazy – Boca Raton

The popular Stir Crazy restaurant at the Town Center mall in Boca Raton abruptly shut down last month, three days after the mall was granted the right to seize the restaurant space following a nasty lease dispute. For 15 years, the Asian-style eatery drew customers ranging from couples to families who enjoyed selecting vegetables and meats, and then watching chefs stir fry their meal in front of them.
