Patrizio’s In Fort Worth Closed Again (For Good This Time)

flockby Steven Doyle

Almost forgot to mention this as we lock up the crave offices for the week. Patrizio in Fort Worth has shuttered once again. The area is plagued with high rent that hasn’t quite panned out the way many had hoped. The employees are on the losing side of this equation. Do not look for another miraculous re-open.

Patrizio Fort Worth Closed *Update

patrizioby Steven Doyle

We learned this weekend that the Fort Worth version of Patrizio shuttered after being locked out by the landlord. Owner Ed Bailey was in the midst of renegotiating the lease when they received word Saturday that the building had been locked up for non-payment of rent.

The Fort Worth store was located at 2932 Crockett Street. This closure does not affect any other Patrizio locations.

*Update: The Fort Worth location is back in business.

Bailey’s In Fairview Will Close (And Cedar Hill)

Yesterday rumors sparked that Bailey’s Prime Plus in Fairview was closed and later in the day the rumor was squelched. The restaurant did close for the Labor Day holiday leading some to believe that there was indeed a closure. We went to the source to do a little discovery. What we found was more than interesting.

“We are investigating closing down the Cedar Hill and Fairview locations for Bailey’s Prime Plus,” said Ken Kuczwaj, a Bailey’s management representative. “We have a national tenant wanting to take over the location in Fairview. To accommodate the landlord we will most likely bow out.”   Continue reading
