Tacqui, the Richardson taqueria where chef Paul Qui developed the menu, has closed its doors after less than six months in business. The restaurant was reportedly locked out of its space in the strip mall that also houses Dog Haus, The Halal Guys, and more eateries over unpaid rent. The restaurant opened right around the time that domestic violence charges filed against Qui in Travis County were dropped because his victim declined to participate in the trial. [GuideLive]

— Portuguese peri peri chicken has arrived in Plano thanks to a new shop called Porto’s Peri Peri.

— The outpost of Meso Maya in Downtown Fort Worth has closed its doors, but apparently the shutter is only temporary. The closure is reportedly connected to parking issues thanks to the lack of a nearby free garage or lot. A representative for the restaurant says that Meso Maya will make a comeback soon, but no word yet on when that’s supposed to happen. A second location in Fort Worth’s Trinity Commons shopping center remains open. [Star-Telegram]
