What places do you love in Montgomery County that appear to be in danger of closing?
A friend mentioned that one of her local favorite restaurants was empty when she was there this weekend and was worried that they would close. I started to think of some of the little places I've loved that seem to be empty too often, and then they've been gone. It occurred to me that we could take advantage of this forum to try and give a boost to some good restaurants that might be struggling and are worth trying to save.
Any recs for struggling places that you think deserve our help?
Spice Xing in the Rockville Town Square.
Everything on Gibbs St. just doesn't get the same walk-up traffic that the places on Maryland Ave. do, and they're all the way at the south end.

I don't know if it's in danger of closing, but Mia's pizza on Cordell in Bethesda is excellent. 4 new pizza places with, it looks like more capital, look set to give it a run.
I want to add that I'm worried about York Castle ice cream on Hungerford in Rockville. It opened over a year ago and I never see anyone there. It is such incredible ice cream and I don't want them to go away. Please visit them - they are between Cuban Corner and Cameron's across from Montgomery College.
