When Alligator Cafe announced back in July it would open a second location in Casa Linda Plaza, the plan was to keep the Alligator Cafe on Live Oak open as well. That plan has changed, however, as the Alligator Cafe on Live Oak will close after Mardi Gras (Tuesday, Feb. 21), according to an employee who answered the phone there today.

The new Alligator Cafe is in the old Frankie’s Lil Europe space.

In other restaurant news, Horne & Dekker on North Henderson closed last week. A reader brought it to our attention, and we found the story on NBCDFW.
