Larry Lavine is Out of the Pie Business and Into Mandola’s Italian Markets


Talked to long-time restaurateur Larry “Chili’s” Lavine yesterday and he told me he’d sold Red’s Patio Grill and planned to roll out a couple of Mandola’s Markets in Dallas. Lavine bought the concept from the Mandola’s in Austin. He said it would have all kinds of Italian goodies, sandwiches, and wines.  Pie? What about your wife Ann’s pie? “She’s working on a new one,” said Lavine.

UPDATE: Looks like Larry Levine was making the rounds. He called Teresa Gubbins too. She has more.
