Looks like Greek restaurant Organicity was locked out of their building in Lakewood shopping center due to failure to pay rent.
The lights were off and the doors were locked tight last night. A notice on the door states that the reason for the lockout and termination of lease for the restaurant at 1906 Abrams is for “nonpayment of rent.”
“In accordance with the lease application to this space, the landlord has taken possession of this space,” the notice states.
Organicity is owned by Gino and Olina Nikolini, who according to their website are from Thessaloniki in the Macedonian region of Greece. They pulled from their own Greek heritage for the menu, and they also prided themselves on serving organic dishes that would “make you live longer.”
I believe they moved to Lakewood shopping center from somewhere along McKinney Avenue. At least, that’s what they told me once when I went inside to say hello. A commenter on a previous story by Advocate publisher Christina Hughes Babb had a similar story. Last I checked, they still had plenty of time left on their lease at Lakewood Shopping Center, but obviously that was cut short.
The phone line listed on their website goes to voicemail, but I’ve reached out to the Nikolinis via email to find out their next move. I’ll update if I hear anything.
