Uptown Park Tex-Mex Spot Anejo Calls It Quits

The pricey restaurant is no more

So long, Anejo.

Considering the massive growth of Houston’s restaurant scene in recent months, it’s no surprise that the boom has brought a few closures in its aftermath. This year alone, Little Liberty, Arthur Ave, and Triniti Restaurant have all called it quits, and now Anejo is the latest casualty.

CultureMap reports that Anejo’s website and social media presence abruptly disappeared over the weekend, followed by a statement from the restaurant’s owner acknowledging that the swanky Tex-Mex spot had closed. “We are all very sad to have to close Anejo,” said Lasco Enterprises owner Jerry Lasco in a statement. “We’ve learned important lessons through this process and I’m thankful to have met such great people and fortunate to have them remain in our work family.”

At present, there are no plans for the company to open a new restaurant in the Uptown Park space. Fortunately, Houston has about a billion other options to satisfy any Tex-Mex cravings that arise in the future.
