Typically, under Texas law, the landlord puts lock on the door pretty quickly after failure to pay rent and eviction procedures are fairly simple. Hard to imagine a million dollars in damages... unless of course, the landlord let them operate for an exceedingly long time without paying.

“We have the building for two years and then it’s going to be torn down,” he says. “The space has so much flexibility. It used to be a Texas Land & Cattle.” The restaurant group plans on turning the space into another pop-up, but in the meantime will be using it to host private holiday events in.

They will open in late Dec. or early Jan. and VBB will keep their West Village location.

A former steakhouse spot in Uptown Dallas will soon be home to a glitzy new restaurant and lounge serving Italian American food. Called Pazzo Uptown, it's going into 2680 Cedar Springs Rd., in the former Place at Perry's location, and it aims to be open before the holidays.
Pazzo will be two concepts in one.
"It will be an American-Italian restaurant with a lounge attached to it, with high-energy nightlife," says spokesperson Jill Berger. "On one side, it'll be a restaurant serving casual Italian food. On the other side, there'll be a lounge. With a lounge and a restaurant under one roof, it's the best of both worlds."

The Dallas City Council agreed Wednesday to sell a Routh Street dead-end to the Katy Trail Ice House for almost a quarter of a million dollars — over the objections of the council member who represents that part of town.
The Ice House agreed to pay the city $225,358 for the small stretch of Routh that runs into the trail off Woodrow Avenue, where the red Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad car's parked. The zoning consultants from Dallas firm Masterplan, representing the popular hangout's ownership, said the Ice House wants to merge the two pieces of properties it owns along the trail that are divided by the dead-end. Dallas Cothrum, Masterplan's CEO, said the Ice House needs to expand its kitchen.
