I’ve messaged it to you all via Facebook a couple times but JDS Shanghai in Gaithersburg is also closed for a few months now; lease signs up and JDS signage pulled off the building.

These are technically the closing dates but readers should not infer that all are from COVID. At least a couple of these were struggling before all this. I am trying to support local but did not start going back to awful restaurants I had already given up on. There are also some good ones I am bummed to see on the list, though.
