    Lakewood (Dallas) news

    I heard a rumor that some developer bought a lot of the commercial properties and hiked up the rent. Then on Saturday I notice Lakewood Bar & Grill closed down. That place was a $#@!hole but fun.

    Then I hear another rumor that they are replacing Matt's Rancho Martinez with a Mi Cocina. Anyone else heard that?

    That's not a rumor, that's true. Matt's is gone in February. They put out the rent for bid, and Mi Cocina came back with the high bid. Matt's offered to match, but Mi Cocina offered to put in a couple million dollars in renovations, which was something Matt's couldn't match. So they're looking for a new location elsewhere in the area.

    Unfortunately, there's just not space for them there. The place where Pizzeria Venti was is vacant, but I think they're filling that with a Purple Cow or some other damned thing.

    I don't know if this technically counts as Lakewood, but one of my boys from growing up is opening a burger/beer joint next door to Good2Go Tacos on Peavy @ Garland Road. It's going to be epic. Goodfriend Beer Garden.

    I'll bet that they weren't paying their rent.

  • #17
    Anybody remember the old Italian restaurant that was there before Matt's? It was called Michelino's.

  • #18
    used to go to matt's when i lived in lakewood back roughly 2002-2004. great times.

  • #19
    I know Matt's has the Austin connection and has been in Dallas for a long while, and I have consumed plenty of lunches and dinners there, BUT... I just think its "okay" for the price. Its just so convenient. However, given a choice, I usually head up to Zuzu's. Not apples/apples, but just my preference.

    Apparently Mi Cocina is taking over the Lakewood Tavern space next door so it will be a freaking big space. LBG closing sucked, but I spend more time at $#@! and Bull in the dark anyways.

    To be clear, however, Lincoln Property (the "big developer") you mentioned only purchased the portion of the shopping center where True Value/Dixie House/Ali Baba is located. Matt's/theatre are owned by a different group.

    Any ETA of Goodfriend? Theres another place opening up next to GF also, cant remember the name.

    I think that's the bottom line. There have been some strange stories about it, basically to the effect that the landlord was unusually quick on the eviction trigger, which may indicate that they were paying very low rent and/or the landlord has another tenant lined up that would pay higher rent. But the place has now sat vacant for two months, which makes it all the more puzzling.

    If they hiked up the rent on LBG, I am sure they did for C&B too. I don't see how they will be able to stay open if that is the case, I have never seen it crowded there.

    I find your avatar combined with that statement to be very offensive.

  • #24
    I have not seen anything written that the LL hiked up the rent. I got the impression from the bar owners' statement afterward that they basically couldn't keep the place going or didn't really want to.

    Friday / Sat nights are usually completely full at C&B. Also, Cowboys/Saints games due to the projector and screen on the back wall. That said, I know nothing about the economics of running a bar/restaurant.

    Goodfriend will probably open next week. Matt, the owner, was telling me he was hoping to have it open by the first of October. His kid goes to school with my kid (cool story bro!) and I know the parents group for the school was going to have a mixer there on October 8th which of course I will not be attending because Texas OU drunkness will be in full effect. So I am going to assume either late this week or early next week. I'll ask him if I see him at the drop off tomorrow. He was saying that he wanted me to come by before it opened but hasn't extended that invite lately. Here's some pics. Don't know the name of the place next door but it's supposed to be "beach food".

    Rent hike is definitely the reason for Matt's. Not too happy about this. I first went when I was a little kid. It won't be the same without that same building, high ceiling, familiar surroundings.

    yeah, normally a place would just close down and the communication between landlord and tenant would be conducted via a medium that was not post it notes on the front door of the place. seemed odd, that's all.

    I am mad that Matt's is leaving. it's about the first place we hit when it turns patio weather.

    It probably has more to do with the landlords jacking up rent so they can get bigger names in those spaces. Lakewood has been a speculators treasure land since the late 90s.

    That was it, but it seems the crisis has been averted (for now) since the Balcony Club came to some agreement with the landlord.

    Could Molly Maguire’s be the latest Lakewood watering hole to close its doors? Landlords locked Molly’s owners out this weekend. We sent an email to owner Joey Burzynski Monday, but he hasn’t responded yet.

    If Molly’s does close, it would be the third Lakewood hot spot to close. Lakewood Bar & Grill closed recently, and Lakewood Tavern will close in October.

    In other restaurant news, Café Lago is for sale. Owner Gabriela Kovacic told Pegasus News she wants to sell the business, which she has owned for 10 years.

    “The more I think about what I want to do with Lago and I see how it’s evolved the more I realize that it is like a chronic newborn – no matter what you do, that baby may keep on crying!” she said in an email.

    We featured Café Lago in the September Advocate. It was one of the first dog-friendly restaurants in Dallas.

    Probably didn't help that some idiot fired shots causing the patio to empty over the weekend.

    Somebody make sure cosmo's is still paying.

    Just drove by Molly M's and they were taking down the Lock Out signs and opening up, so I'm assuming crisis averted, for now. Service there (and the at Tipp) has always been spotty for me and its still pricey. If I recall correctly, that center is owned by Lou Leibowitz, who also owns the YMCA/Far West (or whatever its called now) property. Heard he is an awful landlord.

    As far as Mi Cocina patio, I am not expecting a crowd like uptown.

    Meaning somebody was driving by and shot at the patio or someone on the patio shot at something?

    If the Landing or Cosmo's closes, I will come up to Dallas and Luca Brasi the landlords.

    Saw Matt from Goodfriend this morning. He said it's looking like the week of October 15th for the warmup run. If you haven't friended them on Facebook, you should. They posted their free beer day back in July on FB. Definitely should be fully open by the 17th. I guess the parents mixer for our school is getting rescheduled.

    this.

    i was at matt's a few weeks ago and our server said they'd already found a place down the street. for whatever that's worth.

    also found out thai noodle on fitzhugh is probably closing down because the land owner is renovating to attract higher clientele/restaurants. this really pisses me off.

    Went to C&B last night. Waitress said the owner of LB&G was writing hot checks to TABC, and that although rent had gone up 30% in the last few months, C&B was in no danger of closing. They should benefit somewhat from LB&G closing....just no live music.

So I am going to assume either late this week or early next week. I'll ask him if I see him at the drop off tomorrow. He was saying that he wanted me to come by before it opened but hasn't extended that invite lately. Here's some pics. Don't know the name of the place next door but it's supposed to be "beach food".





    NOM NOM NOM
    That middle pic has a piece of Rmax "Polyiso" insulation board in it (Polyisocyanurate). They're a customer of mine based here in Dallas with plants in Dallas, Greer (SC) and Fernley (NV).

    cool story bro...

    P.S. Mi Cocina sucks donkey ass, but their scenery at the one in HP Village is usually solid.

    I don't think Mi Cocina is bad. I actually think their margaritas are pretty damned good. I just think it's average, and massively overpriced for what it is.

    Their queso, however, is downright terrible. And perhaps that's the most offensive thing about it. You're switching out the place with the best queso in Dallas for the place with the worst.
