The celebrated One Restaurant on Hampson Street in Carrollton’s Riverbend area will serve its final meals this week, and a fresh-food grocery partially financed through a city initiative is closed and up for sale.
One Restaurant’s last dinner service will be New Year’s Eve, after an “extremely difficult” decision by the owners to close, according to Scott Gold for Gambit. Plans for the building have not been announced, and the owners will be moving on with their personal lives, Gambit reports.
DaFresh Seafood & Produce at the corner of Jackson and Baronne opened in January with the assistance of a $117,000 loan from the city’s Fresh Food Retail Initiative, and Doug Kariker put more than $100,000 into the renovation of the building, according to a report by Charles Maldonado of The Lens. Kariker said the store never became profitable and he now has the building on the market for $339,000, the proceeds from which repay the loan, The Lens reports.
