Maybe that for-lease sign up in the window at Tila’s Restaurante and Bar on the Shepherd Curve for the last few months worked: The restaurant closed for business on Sunday — after 20 years at the same location. Owner Tila Hidalgo reports on the restaurant’s Facebook page that her business was given 25 days notice to vacate the property at 1111 S. Shepherd Dr. — it will be out of the space entirely by the end of the month.
Tila’s moved into the rehabbed freestanding former dry-cleaning shop on the island at the intersection of Shepherd Dr. and McDuffie in 1997; an earlier incarnation of the restaurant stood for a time at 616 Westheimer, now the address of Katz’s Deli. Hidalgo reports she will continue to operate the Tila’s Tacos food truck until she can “create and build our newest Tila’s concept.”
