Last week the Houston Business Journal reported that the owner of Las Alamedas had reached agreement on a new lease with its landlord and would reopen on February 6th. But the upscale Mexican restaurant on the Katy Freeway at Voss is still closed.
What happened to that agreement?
â€œThe landlord came back and wanted at least 50 percent more rent and other things that we didnâ€™t originally agree on,â€ says [restaurant owner Jorge] Sneider.
Sneider had previously told reporter Allison Wollam that the original landlord died in a plane crash, and various surviving family members had been fighting over ownership of the property for the last year and a half. “He now hopes he can work out another lease in a couple of weeks,” Wollam reports today.
