Sfuzzi's Uptown Spot Is Closing Tonight, But Owners Are Already Promising A New Location.
Last week, news broke that Uptown pizza joint-cum-nightclub Sfuzzi was potentially in trouble: The McKinney Avenue spot, it was revealed, was embroiled in in a back-and-forth struggle with its landlord over disputed rent payments on potential expansion spaces.
A number of media outlets in town were quick to use that news as a surefire sign of Sfuzzi's certain, impending death. The Sfuzzi team, meanwhile, wasn't nearly as quick to admit defeat; owner Robert Columbo denied those assumptions, while still managing to acknowledge that there was indeed some trouble brewing, and that, as a backup plan, his company was also looking into potential new homes for its restaurant.
Yesterday evening, meanwhile, management released a statement entitled “SFUZZI: a goodbye letter (for now),” in which it was revealed that the end was very much near for Sfuzzi's lifespan at 2533 McKinney Avenue. As we've now teased a few times, tonight — New Year's Eve — will serve as the current location's final night of operation.
But, even amidst this reveal, the company for the most past maintains its earlier position: Sfuzzi's current spot may be closing, but a new one — one in addition to the already-in-place Las Colinas location — isn't too far off.
At the end of the statement, which is filled mostly with thank yous to the restaurant's staff and patrons, management makes sure to keep that fire burning: “Please stay tuned for announcements coming in 2014 of the new location,” the release reads.
