River Oaks Gastronomy History: Signs from the Past

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:

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
