A few weeks ago, a couple of birdies told us they heard that Nathan Tate of Rapscallion fame was considering a new restaurant for the old Dixie House (most recently SugarBacon, but let’s face it, it’ll always be the Dixie House site) in the Lakewood Shopping Center. Turns out that rumor is only half true. We tracked down Tate, who said:
“We are not taking over that space. However, we are looking to do a project in Lakewood. I just don’t think I can comment on it because the lease deal has not been finalized.”
He promised to give the Advocate the news first when he is allowed to talk about his plans for Lakewood, which we will immediately share with readers. For now, two of the biggest restaurant spaces in Lakewood will sit vacant, with the 5,400-square-foot Dixie House location and the 3,700-square-foot Ginger Man (or, more memorably, Angelo’s) site both looking for tenants.
