In early June, patrons of SweetFrog Frozen Yogurt at 1214 W 43rd Street were surprized to see a notice on the door from The Shops at Oak Forest stating that the door locks had been changed due to delinquency of the tenant to pay “at least part of the rent.” Loyal customers took to social media to lament the close and to ask about a quick resolution to the issue. SweetFrog said on their Facebook page that it was a management issue and that they are not able to communicate about the matter publicly. “We are more disappointed than anyone about this and our goal is to serve our community!” the post said. “An update will be issued once there is a resolution.” The latest is that there is a for lease sign now on the store windows. Stay tuned.
Zelko Bistro moves
The rumors are true – Zelko Bistro in The Heights is no more. The Houston Press reports that Dalia and Jamie Zelko aren’t getting out of the restaurant business however. Instead they plan to open an eatery in Bellaire’s Evelyn’s Park.
“We are very thankful to the Heights and to the support we have had over the past 6 years, and are excited for our next chapter in Evelyn’s Park,” said Dalia Zelko in a press release. “We are thrilled to be a part of such a meaningful project that is sure to positively impact this generation and generations to come. We look forward to continuing to immerse ourselves into the Bellaire community.”
The new restaurant will hopefully open this winter. A name will be chosen by a committee sorting through names submitted during a recent competition.
