Ace PegNews reporter, pizza lover, and pastry person Teresa Gubbins reports La Condesa is closed. The Mexican restaurant with a large tequila bar in Victory Park is cerrado. No mas. It has ceased to exist.
Owners Donald Chick and Jesse Herman opened a second La Condesa about six months ago. Chick is the dude in the process of opening a new restaurant on Henderson with chef Marc Cassel. Originally, the place was to be called Jones but I think the name is being tweaked to reflect the “California roadhouse with a farm-fresh mentality” menu. Chick may be a good guy, but he is not Sharon Hage’s best friend. I would like to taste Marc Cassel’s food again. Oh, the Green Room.
