Teresa Gubbins reports that Grotto is now closed. I love this quote from her story: “I think it’s just not good to be an Italian restaurant in Dallas,” said a spokesman at the restaurant.”
To which I might add, it’s just not good to be an average restaurant anywhere–especially in the high-rent district. Taking bets on what goes in. Mine?
UPDATE: An in-the-know real estate type just called to say that there is a three way going on for the Grotto space. Somebody isn’t hurting. It’s a pricey deal.
