Closed: Cherry Street

Casual Italian restaurant Cherry Street has closed at 1612 Lavaca St. in the space previously occupied by Hog Island Deli. Peche, the restaurant’s sister restaurant and cocktail bar, is still open at 208 W 4th St. in the Warehouse District. In my review of the restaurant I wrote that the strip of road Lavaca Street that Cherry Street was located has long been something of a gastronomic purgatory, and that fact seems to hold true. It will be interesting to see what restaurant next attempts to thrive in the space near the capitol.
