Mango Mango, 61 Main Street, Amherst
While food aficionados celebrated the opening of two new restaurants in the downtown -- El Rinconsito Cuscatleco (Salvadoran) and The Taste Thai Cuisine of Amherst -- those same foodies will probably miss Mango Mango located only a mango throw away.
The eclectic cozy lunch and dinner operation opened in the former location of Fresh Side five years ago and closed rather suddenly yesterday. The lack of a liquor license probably didn't help.
Restaurants have one of the highest failure rates of any business, with over half failing to celebrate their fifth birthday.
But chances are that location will be up and running again this fall ... as a restaurant.
