The Californian takes a look back at Johnny Garlic's, the one-time popular restaurant at the Marketplace that has announced its closure. From its signature bowlas, busy lunch hours and Guy Fieri's signature burger -- Fieri sold his interest a couple of years ago -- the restaurant made its mark. Its run was short -- just under four years.

I liked this restaurant so much.A year ago I used to go there not only for dinner but also it was a good place for me to work. That time I was a freelance writer for an essay service familyessay and the restaurant was a perfect place for me to get creative. Too bad they`ve changed.


When the Brick Wings dropped off their menu we stopped going. Not really, but we would have gone a lot more often if they had kept those yummy things on the menu. Sorry to see it go!
