Nove in Victory Park Closes


“Our own” Teresa Gubbins reports the death of Nove, the upscale Italian eatery in Victory Park. Am I surprised? No. Am I happy about it? Hell, no. Dallas, I’ve got a veal shank to pick with you–why do you dislike high-end Italian food? You’ve already kicked Il Mulino and Bice to the curb. Now you turn away another?

Two nights ago, I dined at Madeo in West Hollywood. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in the world. I have eaten there for over 20 years. It’s Northern Italian and expensive. As I savored the flavors, I asked myself why we in Dallas don’t appreciate the taste of exemplary pasta or veal dishes served with refined sauces. Are we that addicted to beef ? I am really bamboozled by this one. Spill you guts, we need Italian food therapy.
