This was a husband and wife team, not some corporate conglomerate that has money to keep dumping in. We ran out of money. Yes, Los Gamelos could've contributed to our demise, but definitely an overpriced location really had most to do with it. We later learned that the cost of the location was also Le Chardonnay's demise. Despite all the negativity you have brought me from your 1 experience Stebben, which even I agreed was less than what it should have been, we had quite a good following and many loyal customers. Don't think your very rude and out of place prediction of us closing within 6 months wasn't in the back of my mind! I really hope you are pleased with yourself. You got what you wanted.
I am sorry you lost your business. My parents owned a restaurant, that I lived above, for over 20 years. It's a hellish business and takes a lot of dedication. My comments on this forum were on this forum, not directed towards you or your family.
Madison is a hard place to open a business. The first 6 months will make or break you.
I did go back a second time. I never judge a restaurant by my first visit. I thought it was ok that time, but not worthy of posting about it again, and unfortunately not worthy of telling anyone I thought it was worth going back.
There has been an upsurge in taco restaurants in this town within the last few years. That makes it even more competitive to come up with something new, good, or even better than the rest.
I do wish you luck and hopefully you don't give up on what you're doing.
