I guess I'll have to cross a name off my restaurant bucket list!

It's always a bummer to see a local business close its doors, especially when that business has been open less than a year. On Friday, KCRG reported that Rock Top, a restaurant on Blairs Ferry Road in Cedar Rapids, would be closing at the end of the night. They only opened in September of last year.

They didn't give any details on why the restaurant would be closing, only stating that it was due to "circumstances beyond our control." They did say to keep and eye on the location, because something "bigger and better" is on the way. I have heard several rumors on Facebook that the location will be re-opening in about a month with a new name and new management. I was really hoping to go sit out on that awesome patio this summer, so I really hope the rumors are true!
