Some shops and restaurants leave merely a digital legacy upon demise (and memories, with patrons), others leave visible reminders of their erstwhile presence. Here are a few that left signs of their former contributions to the sustenance of the River Oaks neighborhood, -- at different levels of the gastronomic pecking order:
|Fading sign of Thierry André Tellier Café - Patisserie |
- Erstwhile Cafe & Pastry Shop at Lamar River Oaks
|Lamar River Oaks Shopping Center in Sep 2015 |
with The Huntington Condo Tower (on Kirby) in the distance
|A Quiznos Sob Sign - All that's left are the blessings|
The building that housed this sandwhich shop, located
East of Millennium HighStreet and River Oaks District, has been torn down
|Quiznos was here: Empty lot on corner of Westheimer and West Lane|
The image of the Bird & the Bear still graces
the River Oaks Village, but not for much longer
|Ouisie's Bird & The Bear space is currently being remodeled|
to re-open as a different concept by new tenant (reportedly Relish Fine Foods).
