Remember our sweet SideDish reporter Kellyn Curtis? She’s now over at The Feast. A little while ago, Kellyn posted an interview she conducted with Sharon Hage. In case you’ve been drinking kava on a deserted island in Fiji, you already know that Hage closed her popular Dallas restaurant York Street last Friday.
Obviously the closing of York Street was big news in Dallas. When Teresa Gubbins broke the story, it was picked up by every blogger and tweeter in town. DMN critic, Leslie Brenner wrote a page 1A “appreciation” story for the paper. (Hmm, I can’t seem to remember Ms. Brenner writing about a meal she ate at York Street.) However, she writes that she had reservations for 10PM on Saturday night–which was supposed to be the last night–but she was shut out when Hage ran out of ingredients and decided to close the restaurant on early.
I hate it that York Street closed; but I love the way Hage handled it. Running out of ingredients and shutting the door was like letting the restaurant die of natural causes. Classy act, Sharon Hage. Get some rest.
