Townhouse Kitchen + Bar is closed forever and ever, according to The Advocate.  About three weeks ago, Nancy reported that the restaurant was locked out of its Galleria space for not paying its rent.

Bon Appetit’s list of the 10 Best Restaurants in America 2013 overlooks Dallas, again. Remember when this happened last year, with Oak and Woodshed Smokehouse? Well, the trend continues. Spoon and FT33, you may not be in Bon Appetit‘s top ten, but you’re in OUR top ten.

From the looks of their Facebook page, it sounds like the hiring process is almost underway. “We will be accepting applications soon for bartenders, cocktail, bar backs & all back of the house positions. Please help us spread the word!”
