Chicas Mexican Cafe Closing Monday
Chicas Mexican Cafe, 6482 Avondale Dr, in Nichols Hills Plaza will close at the end of business on Monday, Feb. 28, ending a nearly nine-year run in two locations.
The concept started in 2003, occupying the old Patio restaurant space which has since been The Sidecar Lounge and is presently The Drunken Fry. By 2006, the concept was sold to The Deep Fork Group and moved to its current home, which was once a sandwich shop called Scotti’s.
Chicas has long been one of my wife Lori’s favorite haunts, a frequent meeting place for she and her co-workers old and new. I went with her today for a farewell lunch and was glad to have some chicken tostadas and the same excellent queso they’ve always been known for.
Chicas unique vibe and modern Tex-Mex menu will be missed, but the next tenant will look to keep the tradition alive. Fear of the Jinx compels me to withhold who the next tenant will be, but I should be able to update this post on Tuesday to officially reveal the name. Here’s a couple hints: this concept will not be new to either the cuisine nor the area.
