After years of serving serving pastas and steaks to happy customers, Uptown's Arcodoro & Pomodoro closes its doors. In 2009, the Sardinian-Italian restaurant moved from its Routh Street location to the doomed corner spot in Crescent Court. Crave DFW broke the news this morning that after a long run, A&P shuttered its doors this week.
Crescent Court's receptionist said that it was a sudden and permanent closure. The more pressing question is whether or not Dallas has lost Arcodoro & Pomodoro for good. And of course what restauranteur is brave enough to take over that space?
