ISO-long defunct "Italian Garden" in Irving

This wonderful restaurant used to be at the NWc 183 and o'Connor (at the back of the Albertson's shopping center). It's been gone now for multiple years, but the food was so good. Prior to opening this location, 2 brothers had a much more casual restaurant in a strip center on the north side of 183, I believe on Story. They had a falling out and the result for one of them was opening the IG. The Story Rd location closed shortly thereafter.

Their menu was near identical and both of their veal/chicken/pastas dishes were just simple and good. The garlic toasts were baguette rounds with very thin shavings of garlic. The IG was small, a little upscale with a piano in the front, full (small) bar at the back next to the kitchen.

I'm wondering if anyone is familiar with either of these 2 restaurants to know if *possibly* one/both of the brothers reopened another location - in or around Irving. I'm missing good, simple Italian.
