Whether Boston gets hit with two feet of snow or nothing today, a lot of restaurants around town have already decided to close early or close entirely in the face of Nemo. Here's a round-up of restaurants' statuses for today, Friday, February 8th. Check back for updates throughout the day; leave a comment below or tweet using the hashtag #OpenInBOS if anything's missing. Most importantly, stay safe and stay warm. And maybe drink a little bit. (Please note that as conditions change throughout the day, many businesses are updating their closing times, so be sure to call first before venturing out to a place that is listed as open. Also keep in mind that the T is shutting down at 3:30 PM. And be sure to tip well.)

Update: Governor Deval Patrick has signed an executive order banning all vehicles from roads starting at 4 PM and continuing until further notice, so more restaurant closures may be flowing in imminently.
