Shi-shi seafood spot Water Grill shutters abruptly
After about three years of serving extravagantly priced (and presented) seafood dishes, California-based chain Water Grill has closed its only Dallas location. Per a statement provided by the restaurant, its last day of service was Monday, February 17, and all unused food was donated to the People’s Baptist Church. “The decision to close was not an easy one to make, as we’ve loved serving the Dallas community over the past three years,” the company said in a statement. “We hope to see you at one of our California or Las Vegas Water Grill locations on your next visit.”
