Deathwatch Annual Report: 16 Closed; 18 Deathwatched; 2 Survivors

New, 22 comments

We now present our first ever complete report on the Deathwatch. Below, every venue that's been placed on the the dreaded list, along with original Deathwatch paperwork, date Deathwatched and the time they've spent on the Watch. By the numbers, we've placed 36 restaurants on the Deathwatch; 16 have closed, 18 remain in the Eater Hospice, in varying states of decay (3 have gone into remission), and 2 have been de-listed and are genuine Deathwatch survival stories.
