JUST IN: Restaurant shuts down abruptly at The Greene


One of The Greene Town Center’s flagship restaurants shut down abruptly this morning, Sunday Sept. 24.

McCormick & Schmick’s, a full-service seafood restaurant that has been open nearly as long as The Greene has, is closed permanently.

“Our lease term came to an end, and due to rising real estate costs, we elected not to renew our lease,” Howard Cole, chief operating officer of Landry’s, Inc., the parent company of McCormick & Schmick’s, told this news outlet via email. “We value our employees, their dedication to our company and are working to relocate them.”

The company did not immediately respond to an inquiry as to how many employees were affected. But one of those employees was telling disappointed customers who were trying to eat lunch at the restaurant shortly after 11 a.m. today that he first learned of the closure when he reported to work this morning.

The closure comes a few weeks after The Greene announced a new restaurant, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, has signed a lease to open at near The Greene’s front entrance. It will be the first Dayton-area location for the Fort Worth, Texas-based chain, which is shooting for a mid-December opening.

Officials with The Greene’s management team did not have any immediate comment about the closure.
