Da Afghan RIP

After two decades in business, Da Afghan is gone.

After two decades in business, Da Afghan is gone.

We wondered what was up when we couldn't reach 'em by phone last week and now Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine has confirmed our worst fears: Da Afghan has closed. A sign on the door that previously read "temporarily closed," now reads "permanently closed." The tucked away Bloomington restaurant (near REI off of 494) had been welcoming Minnesotans with its homey ambiance and delicious Middle Eastern fare--lamb shanks, baba ghanoush, spinach pies--since 1988. And it will be sorely missed.
