I just heard through the grapevine that Ararat on North Loop is closing at the end of the month due to an extended battle with the City over occupancy and parking issues and can't afford to relocate.
(But I can't help but wonder if all the bad word of mouth about the surly service and not-great food has contributed to its demise.)
At any rate: should I check it out before they close? Or will it just piss me off? (I am a stickler about service, despite or perhaps because of my years as a waitron.)
