Back in February, hallowed Lower Greenville dining institution The Grape got out of the brunch game, citing a lack of traffic through its doors during the Sunday brunch shift. Today, the announcement came that the 47-year-old restaurant will close.
“We came to the crossroads of our lease renewal and after all of these years, we decided as a family that we are heading out on a different path and yet another amazing Luscher family adventure,” owners Brian and Courtney Luscher said in a statement, according to CultureMap Dallas. The Luschers purchased from original owners Kathy McDaniel and Charlotte Parker in 2007.
There’s still time yet to try The Grape’s classic cheeseburger with horseradish pickles, bacon, and Vermont cheddar, which has been called the “Best Burger in Texas” — or its beloved cream of mushroom soup. The Grape will close for good on October 10.
The restaurant posted on its Facebook page today: “It’s been the best ride.”
