Preston Hollow's colorful, Mediterranean-influenced Oso Food & Wine has called it quits. Saturday night's dinner service was its last. Owner Michael Cox (the former CEO of Mi Cocina parent company MCrowd) broke the news in a written statement to local media, which read in part:
With great regret and sorrow I have decided to close OSO. Tonight will be our final night of service. Since opening last fall we have earned many loyal guests and exceptional reviews in the press and social media. Unfortunately we were not able to gain a large enough audience to support the business. We are so sorry and heart broken to close but we simply can not afford to continue. I want to thank my wife Gail, daughters Britt, Emmelie & Maisey, Chef Kelly Hightower, our dedicated team, our loyal guests, friends and limited partners who supported and believed in us. My priority is to find employment for our incredible staff then focus on the the details of closing the business. Please know I am so grateful for the wonderful experience of opening OSO. I will value the friendships gained and lessons learned.
Oso received a favorable three-star review from the Dallas Morning News back in December and even has a five-star average rating on Yelp, but sadly good reviews alone aren't enough to sustain a business.
