Sugar Skull Cafe at Trinity Groves is Closed

Today is the taqueria's last day of business.

News comes this afternoon that today is Sugar Skull Cafe’s last day of business. According to the release:

Trinity Groves, the country’s first and only restaurant incubator and a leading force in the economic development of West Dallas, today announced that Sugar Skull Cafe is closing November 30. A fast-casual restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, Sugar Skull’s menu paid homage to Mexico City street food.

As a true incubator, Trinity Groves invests in new concepts like Sugar Skull and provides their partner operators with the resources and expertise they need to bring those concepts to market. Sugar Skull was the second Trinity Groves project for Jonn Baudoin. (He opened the celebrated Casa Rubia with Chef Omar Flores in November 2014.)

“I’ve had a great run at Trinity Groves,” Baudoin says in an email. “They believed in me and empowered me to try new things. I’m obviously disappointed, but I also understand that it’s the nature of this business.”

“You have to have the right food, in the right place at the right time to succeed. It’s not for the faint of heart,” restaurateur and president of Trinity Groves Support Group, Bob Sambol, also states in an email. “At the same time, the Trinity Groves team continues to learn more about what it takes for a restaurant to thrive here. That insight is invaluable, particularly as we continue to grow and create more opportunities for promising entrepreneurs. Jonn is smart, creative and passionate about food. I’m confident that the Dallas dining scene will be hearing from him again.”

Well, there you have it.
