restaurants come and go all the time.
could be many reasons besides the rent.
some raise rent later to give the business time to get established.
YOU the owner and KNOW the bottom line on income, expenses, and profit?

Another Obama and Crocker casualty. Keep that in mind when voting for people around here that are friends with Crocker.

Glad flor de mayo is gone. All the waiters were worried about was if they could get your wife away from you.

In the last 4-5 years there has been about five different names to this restuarant. I think it has a new name every year. It seems a restuarant of this size building and a good location could stay in business longer than a year at a time.
nope

Well, I can say one thing. That is I hope nothing will go back in this place. Reason is every time something goes in, it's goes out of buiness. Ownership of building and the hamburger Tax kills a good restaurant. Black pearl, is another example, if you don't own the place and someone else does and don't set down and workout a Solutions. Whatever try's to go in will not last long! Owners raising Rent and the Food Tax. That's my answer, anyone else have a better answer?
yep

This restaurant started off with great food. The last time I was there, I decided to never return. The owner or manager (whatever he was) didn't give a flip if the food was cold, tough or otherwise disgusting. The rent, taxes, etc have nothing to do with it, lack of returning customers is obvious.
We need a good, down to earth restaurant, forget the barf buffet, how about a good meal?
