Franco’s Ristorante (505 Mendocino Ave, Santa Rosa) has shuttered — at least temporarily. The restaurant’s alcohol license was suspended on April 4, 2012 according to the ABC, doors have been closed for more than a week and an answering machine message states that the restaurant is “closed until further notice). Franco’s opened in the former 505/Acapulco space in March 2010.
Also closed: Aioli Deli in Forestville. The quaint eatery served up killer crabcakes and made-to-order sandwiches, made by Chef Autumn Opitz. They’ll be missed.
