Natsumi Gelato and Frozen Yogurt on Henderson in Dallas is Closed

Dang! Where ever shall we find organic pink guava frozen yogurt. A loyal Disher reports a “For Lease” sign in the window of Natsumi, the foodie-friendly fro-yo joint on Henderson. Does anyone think the horrific parking situation on that stretch of Henderson is responsible for the death of this spot? That stretch of road is killing itself slowly. Let’s hope Natsumi is relocating.

UPDATE: Natsumi has a space in Shed 2 at the Dallas Farmers Market. If you haven’t been to the newly remodeled Shed 2 recently, you must go.

    I saw they have a spot downtown at the Farmers Market.

    Thanks for passing along my tip Uncle N.

    You’re spot on with the parking situation. That parking lot went from bad to ridiculously bad when they put in that centralized valet thing by Sushi Axiom and when Fish City turned over their lot on the other side of the development to valet. Natsumi had two “dedicated” spots marked by signage and that was it. Everything else was coned off ro claimed by the valets.

    I saw them there didn’t know that was a permanent move. Thanks for the Shed 2 info!

    I know what you mean when you say parking troubles on Henderson, but oddly enough I park near where Natsumi was located quite often and never have trouble. This is a few windows down from Veritas and H&D and there is typically parking always available without using the adjoining valet.

    Parking. Try landlords. Once again the only people doing well are the greedy landlords.

    I avoid the restaurants along that part of Henderson because of the parking situation. I would love to eat at these places. I don’t suppose there will ever be a parking garage built. Sigh.

    I knew what she was having to pay for rent. After that, I knew it was only a matter of time.

    @ John. You are so right! It wasn’t parking. She had two reserved non-valet spots right in front of the store. Plus, all the daytime non-valet parking available.
    It was the rent!

    Twinwillow should run for Dallas County Commissioner on the Rent is Too Damn High party ticket.

    @Thomas: You must either be one of Dallas’ greedy landlords or, totally out of touch with what it takes to be a retailer in Dallas. Give it a rest.
