Are you talking about The Silo? This is an art facility of sorts... knicknamed "The Art Car Graveyard", its got a lot of crazy events going on there. I cant confirm what you mean but i can tell the roof has become more colorful. Post a pic.
Optimist here: if the concern is for the superbowl, there's nothing stopping the owners from pulling a temporary TABC for each property and having some beer booths along with 10-15 food trucks and asking for a modest 15-20% cut of sales.
reality here: they'll probably just charge $100 per parking spot.
I'm totally underwhelmed with Cafe Toulouse, so far, although I'm also willing to give their team some more time to get it together. Two lunches and two dinners now, and both have food that tastes bland (without even sufficient seasoning) and waitstaff that is far less attentive and professional than both the ambience and prices would suggest. The owner is Italian along with a woman manager, and love to kibbitz with customers more than watching the service. Looks to be a 'society, seen and be seen, gig' versus serious culinary adventures. I'm guessing their La Taverna will be better. They'd better get it together, though, because the restaurant scene in Htown is magnificent, AND competitive. Pretty stout rents at ROD will motivate the winners, but if things don't improve rapidly at Cafe T, they're gone when their primary lease term is done (probably 5 0r 10 years, is my guess). For French, La Brasserie and Max and Julie's run rings around them. For Italian, there are many starting with the Mandola creations and even Carrabas that La Taverana will have to compete with.
The finest stores at this luxury center prefer to be in the middle of it. Westheimer frontage and visibility advantage with high traffic coints matter
only with the lesser lights (ie, not Dior, Tom Ford, et al.), imho.
