Last meals will be in the middle of February. Excellent, made-to-order food being replaced by a chain food place.(CF doesn't deserve to be called a restaurant)

    OH NO!!!!!!! That's awful news. We've eaten there a number of times over the last few years and always loved, not just liked, the food. And CF?!?!? I agree with your opinion and when I had to eat there a couple of times with a friend, I didn't even find the food particularly affordable. Just when I'm starting to brag about the cool food scene in Reno, it shows that LCD (lowest common denominator) food still wins out. At least with the mall crowd.

    Thanks for the headsup.

      The owners of 775 showed incredible class (more than I would have shown) in their announcement of the closing. They encouraged everyone to patronize the "business that would be taking their place" (without mentioning it by name) and said that they were glad that it would bring much-needed jobs to the area.....

      Sad.

        I read that also. Sad indeed.
