(12/27/12) - A Burton restaurant that gained national attention this year will close its doors for good on New Years Eve.
Paliani's was featured on The Food Network's "Restaurant Impossible" show back in September.
The show highlighted owner Maria Bufalini's efforts to make over the struggling business and keep it afloat.
Thursday, she told ABC12 News it's financially impossible to stay open any longer.
Paliani's began serving up Italian cuisine on Lapeer Road back in 1965, under the ownership of Bufalini's aunt and uncle.
