After 14thandYou broke the news that Garden District was filing for bankruptcy, they made a point to mention that Garden District’s new venture, Crepes on the Corner, wouldn’t be affected. Yet when I walked by over the weekend, the sign that had been up announcing Crepes on the Corner is coming soon was gone, and a sign for office space for lease was up.
More Internet research showed that I was right, there will be no Crepes on the Corner. A post up on the Garden District listserv announced that the owners of Garden District (I assume) couldn’t come to an agreement “regarding the formation of the operating agreement and LLC.” So the space is up for rent.
So the crepe wars on 14th street are over before they began.
