These Delaware restaurants closed this year. Not everyone’s over it


It’s nearly 2022, and a new year is a time for new beginnings for everyone.

But first, we can’t help but look back at some of the endings we weren’t quite ready for.

It was a tough year for … well, pretty much everything. While many Delaware restaurants, cafes and other food businesses continue to weather these tough times, others were not so lucky.

2021 brought many restaurant closures across the country, and while they did not all shut their doors because of COVID-19, another year of a pandemic and related staffing, supply and safety issues did not help.

Happily, the First State can look forward to new restaurants planning to open in the months ahead,

But first, a look back (and a few sniffles) at six we will miss that closed their doors for a final time this year:

BarRoja, Wilmington

The new BarRoja was located at the former home of Scratch Magoo's in Wilmington.

BarRoja, known for tacos and tequila, announced on social media on Aug. 7 that they were officially closed.

“Thank you for sharing tacos and tequila with us!” they said.

“Bar Roja is now closed. We look forward to hosting Trolley Square Oyster House events here in our space, plus more exciting things to come in the future!”

Berri Yummi, Wilmington

Berri Yummi Frozen Yogurt in Talleyville closed after a 10-year run. Owners say the coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on the business.

A Wilmington staple for afterschool snacks, post-game celebrations and any time you had a craving for something sweet, Berri Yummi said goodbye early in 2021.

During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, the frozen yogurt shop temporarily shut down from March to May 2020.

On Nov. 27, 2020, owner Lyman Chen posted to the Berri Yummi social media accounts the closure of his business.
