Greenville Avenue staple Rapscallion says goodbye
Greenville Avenue in Dallas loses one of its pillars. Rapscallion, a neighborhood bistro and bar known for its southern-inspired menu and rotating specials, calls it quits this weekend after a strong seven-year run. The closure was announced on the restaurant’s Facebook page on Thursday afternoon, Magazine D reported for the first time.
Co-owner Brooks Anderson said The Dallas Morning News that the decision to close came down to a simple cost-benefit analysis.
“We just decided that we need to focus on our money-making businesses, and that’s really it,” he said. “We did a good job serving the neighborhood, but it was just time. Every space needs different things to function. Each space, each concept is its own entity, and whatever exact combo we needed to succeed at a high level at Rapscallion, we were never able to achieve it.
Anderson, who owns and operates Boulevardier, Veritas Wine Room and Hillside Tavern with his brother Bradley Anderson, said their other concepts are doing well and they plan to focus solely on those for now. They will not be opening a new restaurant at Rapscallion, he said.
Rapscallion’s final dinner service will be on Saturday, May 14.
