Economy and local restaurants

I have been reading other threads(Not About Food) describe slow downs in dining industry resulting in kitchens closing early,fewer wait staff, smaller menus. Husband and I eat out 2-3 week at neighborhood favs and I have not noticed much slow down especially on weekends. Are there gems to be found that usually were impossible to get into that now are easier to visit? The other posts mentioned higher end restaurants will be impacted although I believe the bay area scene with places like FL,Ritz Dining Room probably need a smaller niche of diners so perhaps no impact yet. What about the midprice range($15-30 entree) any slow down there? Most likely to survive restaurants are going to have to step up to the plate-no pun intended. Any thoughts or observations on local establishments?
