Patrons found the doors locked to West 7th’s Patrizio Pizza, Pasta & Vino, one of the development’s most popular dining spots, on April 19 and West 7th management confirmed the location had closed and there was “strong interest” in the Patrizio space. One week later on April 26, the Dallas-based Italian eatery reopened and is now back to normal business hours.
“It was a corporate decision, obviously temporary,” said Jon Omealey, general manager for the Fort Worth Patrizio location. “There was a negotiation between the landlord and Edward C. Bailey Enterprises that owns us and luckily for the store, that negotiation was decided in a positive manner.”
There are five other Patrizio locations in the Metroplex, including the two-story, multi-million dollar Southlake location that opened last summer. Edward C. Bailey Enterprises, Inc. also owned Bailey’s Prime Plus, the high-end steakhouse that was located where Jon Bonnell’s Waters now sits. The Fort Worth Bailey’s closed last year and the restaurant’s Dallas location closed in January.
