As Deep Ellum Regains One Beloved Restaurant, Daddy Jack's Quietly Closes

View Larger Map
As one door reopens in Deep Ellum, another quietly shuts: Three weeks ago, Daddy Jack's Elm Street location turned out the lights for good, ending a long run in the former home of the Buffalo Club (anyone? anyone?). The Web site's dead; the phone's been disconnected. Which isn't to say the space will sit empty for long: Deep Ellum Foundation president Barry Annino tells Unfair Park this morning that over the last couple of weeks, "several" interested parties have been sniffing around the site, which should become a hot spot once the Green Room re-opens in January.
