CHARLOTTE — Word of several restaurant closures around town has trickled out in recent days, ranging from relatively new eateries to a long-standing establishment. Among the latest is Bocado Bar & Diner, which replaced the old Big Ben Pub at South End’s Atherton Mill just last summer.

Others include Central Coffee, also in South End, and Carolina Prime Steakhouse, which operated for 17 years on Woodlawn Road.
