The Guadalupe location of Arpeggio Grill has closed its doors to make way for a Fuzzy's Taco Shop along the UT Drag. The Daily Texan reports that the family-owned Arpeggio's Greek and Mediterranean fare couldn't compete with its cheap eats neighbors:

Fida Shah, joint owner of Arpeggio Grill, said he was sad to leave his location on the Drag, but is still operating at a second location on Airport Blvd. He said the rent on the Drag was twice as much as he is paying on Airport.

“The Guadalupe location is a different ball game than the Airport location,” Shah said. “Students couldn’t afford our prices that were necessary with our quality of food.”

The Airport location is still open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.
