Clayton Closures for Benito's Gelato, KD Poppa's and ZuZu


  • Ian Froeb
Thanks to reader Laura, who commented on the January Restaurant Roll Call to inform me of several closures in Clayton -- all on the same block, in fact:

Benito's Gelato
has closed its location at 14 North Central Avenue. A "For Rent" sign is on the front door. The location at 1760 Clarkson Road appears to be open. There was an active voice-mail message when I called just now. Can anyone who has been in the neighborhood confirm that it remains open?

Also closed is the Clayton location of ZuZu Handmade Mexican Food at 31 North Central Avenue. I'm still working to confirm that the downtown location is still open. Again, any one been by lately?

Finally, KD Poppa's at 4 North Central Avenue has closed. The space will become another location of the McAlister's Deli chain.
