Today, Kylie Kwong finally validated that Billy Kwong’s last service will be on Sunday, June 30. The famous Australian-Chinese eating house will not be the only one calling it stops this weekend– veteran favorites Longrain and ACME will likewise be turning off the lights for the last time.

Clear those calendars, restaurants, and begin making those goodbye reservations.
