A note in a newsletter from a restaurant website hints that some long-rumored changes to that quaint shopping district on the west side of Mid Lane north of Westheimer, just west of the Highland Village Shopping Center, are about to begin: “Yes, the block that Crapitto’s Cucina Italiana is in has been sold. No, Crapitto’s is not closing and will remain there. The block will be developed and most of the businesses have moved out so construction can begin in a few weeks.”
Proprietor Frank Crapitto tells b4-u-eat his restaurant will stay right where it is, under a 4-year lease, “unless we choose to move to the new building if and only when a new restaurant location will be built to our specifications.” The property at 2400 Mid Lane was purchased in February of last year by KNA Partners.
