The markingsÂ left behind byÂ the Key Maps storeÂ in the wake of itsÂ second move since 2015 areÂ still hanging out this afternoon alongside the leasing notice near the shop’sÂ former place at the east end of the Richmond Avenue Shopping Center strip mall, just east of Fountainview Dr. The Key Maps folksÂ are back inside the Inner Loop again, this time on Durham St.Â next door to the Dirty Hairy Dog Wash.Â The most recently former Key Maps location, shown above, has picked up a new neighbor itself since the cartographymonger’s departure: the ex-Subway at the end of the strip is about to reopen asÂ essentialist fried chicken joint Krisp Bird & Batter.Â A sign on the door says Krisp will be open on Monday:Â
Greg Morago reported last weekÂ in the Chronicle that Krisp chef Ben McPherson is already planning a second location for the not-yet-a-chain:Â the Texas Cafeteria spotÂ that MFTÂ has been remodeling, next door to the former Fiesta lot at the center ofÂ all that Â H-E-B funded Heights alcohol election drama last year.
