Black-eyed Pea in Preston Center in Dallas is Closing Tomorrow

The restaurant is calling it quits after service tomorrow.

After three years of struggling to do a bang-up business in Preston Center, Black-eyed Pea is calling it quits. According to the restaurant’s bartender, Terry Graham, the problem is parking, as in there is not enough. Employees of the Preston Center location will be absorbed by other Black-eyed Pea locations. Their final day will be tomorrow.

Writing about Black-eyed Pea makes me think about the creator, Gene Street, and this crazy story he wrote about chicken fried steak.

    Read Gene’s article. Never knew he is a talented writer. Non sports Dan Jenkins….

    Such an enjoyable and well written read!

    Since when is a bartender a credible source for an opinion on this? No offense, but it just sounds odd to be quoting the “bartender” vs. someone in upper management, on a story like this.

      Shockingly, employers often tell employees when they are going out of business.

        The comment is not referring to the fact that the location closed, but that a bartender was the journalist’s quoted “source” regarding the reason it was shuttered.

    Is that the one next to where Spoon was, because that location is just designed terribly.

    The food and the value was excellent. Noone else sales salmon like BEP for such a great value.The problem was the rude inattentive waitstaff and the arrogant bartender. When your have people like them on your team, you are destined to lose customers and eventually shutdown.
