Bistro Babusan, the fast-casual operation serving "fresh Asian fusion" from the guy who gave Genghis Grill to the world, is closing its sole location at The Village At Fairview. Mark Brezinski--you'll recognize him as a member of the team behind the much a-buzzed Velvet Taco--told Pegasus News that the low traffic at the shopping center was mostly to blame: "There was nothing happening in the center, and my partner couldn't keep pumping money into it."
A note on the restaurant's website thanks patrons and emphasizes that it sure wasn't the food that was the problem: "our restaurant was very well received" reads the blurb, which adds that Brezinski and the Chalak Group "look forward to the future when we may again pursue this concept." It's hard to imagine a lack of traffic at the Velvet Taco.
