They also put out a list, though not listed or linked on the restaurant guide main page (though it was used as a teaser before the restaurant guide came out), of the places that didn't make the list this year that were on it last year:

 

http://www.wweek.com...guide_2013.html

 

2nd Story (closed)

3 Doors Down

A Cena

Accanto

Beaker & Flask (closed)

The Bent Brick

Bluehour

Boke Bowl

Caffe Mingo

Cedo’s

Clarklewis

Del Inti (closed)

El Gaucho

The Farm Cafe

Gilt Club

Gloria’s Secret Cafe

Gruner

JCD

June (closed)

Kin (closed)

Metrovino (closed)

Murata

Otto (closed)

Paley’s Place

Ping (closed)

Riffle NW (closed)

Ringside Fish House

Smokehouse 21

Yakuza

 

Some are obviously closed.  I find some of them quite surprising, such as Gruner, Paley's Place, Murata, El Gaucho, Clarklewis, and Boke Bowl.  Of course, they didn't include Boxer Sushi either, perhaps in solidarity with Michael Russell at the Oregonian, so I guess it shouldn't be too surprising they didn't include Murata.  The inclusion of Bamboo, Yama, and Piazza Italia (when 3 Doors Down gets axed) does make me wonder if there's a little provincialism, a little lenience for the places nearby the WW offices.
