Once-trendy Vapiano closed, Wild Cat Tavern taking over Mockingbird Station space

You knew it was coming. As Lauren Daniels at the Dallas Observer wrote this morning, Vapiano, the 2009 Hot New Concept (Nations Restaurant News) in Mockingbird Station, has closed…or rather, has been forced to vacate the premises.

The landlord saw it coming, too. Taking Vapiano’s place: Wild Cat Tavern, yet another new casual concept from Restaurants America. (RA also owns PrimeBar, Townhouse and the soon-to-open Boca Chica in the Shops at Park Lane.)
