Openings & Closings: A Bennigan's Bites the Dust...Again

This week welcomes pizza, pasta and a whole lot of comfort food. But as we welcome these new establishments, we say good-bye to a couple of others.

A little birdie told us that on either Monday or Tuesday of this week a "For Lease" sign appeared at Chopping Block Gourmet Burgers on Washington Avenue. We can confirm that Chopping Block's location is definitely for lease, after seeing nearly four signs hanging on and around the building. While no formal closing announcements have been made, it's likely that the less-than-a-year-old restaurant is no more.

In "shocking" news, Bennigan's on Westheimer has closed and according to B4-U-Eat a 59 Diner will take its place. This makes one wonder what will happen to the second revived Bennigan's location in Shenandoah?
