Tre Amici in Dallas is Closed

Tre Amici goes belly up.

What a long strange trip it’s been for Tre Amici. Opened in December, 2008 as a steak house with an Italian fare, the restaurant struggled through partnership changes, menu realignments, and public relations problems. Last night Tre Amici closed. Ken Branstetter, GM and partner at Tre Amici, has this to say.

It’s unfortunate, but we just never could generate enough traffic to get over the hump.  I’m extremely proud of my staff, they were loyal and hard working to the end.

The building on North Dallas Parkway has already housed two other steak joints, Rick Stein’s and Flemings, and the space is flanked (sorry) by Raffrain, a Brazilian steakhouse that seems to be doing well. I’ve never fallen in love with the all-you-can-eat churrascaria concept, but I seem to be in the minority. What gives?
