The restaurant scene in the San Gabriel Valley is something that is in perpetual flux, and that was no different in 2010. Some restaurants added locations -- a few to the point of becoming burgeoning local chains -- while others scaled back by closing either the newest or their original locations.

It was a year Uighur cuisine came to the SGV, a Taiwanese breakfast favorite returned from the ashes, acclaimed Hunan and Sichuan restaurants closed, and one of Jonathan Gold's 99 Essential L.A. Restaurants served its last pho bac.

Trying to compile a list of the year's openings and closings in the 626 area code is a daunting task, but between our knowledge, and some kind folks at Chowhound, the feat was accomplished and can be found after the jump. If we've missed something, perhaps a place that opened or closed as this list was being compiled, let us know in the comments or by e-mail:
