BIZNOTES: Kokoras, Fleurt, Matador

Three quick biznotes:

KOKORAS GREEK GRILL: Readers noted that the newest incarnation of this Morgan Junction restaurant at 6400 California SW has been dark for more than a week. Weekend before last, a handwritten sign on the door said it was closed due to “employee conflict.” Then that disappeared. We tried calling and only got a recording saying the mailbox was full. A tipster this week said it appeared the space was being emptied. We stopped by today and noticed someone doing work inside, and asked him. Remodeling, was his reply, but that’s all he could say.

FLEURT: Remodeling is also what’s happening at this Junction shop (4536 California SW). From proprietors Sam and Keonii:

Wanted to let you know that each year at this time we do a mini makeover and refresh the shop for the holidays. Our work began (Tuesday) and we hope to be open again no later than Friday this week. We are super-excited for our new look and another new business venture that we will be announcing soon.

MATADOR: Just up the block from Fleurt, Matador (4546 California SW) sent word they’ve launched a beverage happy hour. 4-6 pm daily and featuring beer, wine, well drinks, and specialty cocktails, according to general manager Kyle Martin.

    Hopefully remodeling at Kokoras involves removing the heavy window tint and gimmicky scrolling lights… whoever ends up there.  The building has been somewhat standoffish in its current iteration, needs more connection to the street and sidewalk.

    Finally a Matador drink HH for those who don’t have kids and still can go there (I have a 1 year old now so my days of going are over…for now).

    It used to sting to sit down for some delicious $5 HH food items only to pay $12 for a margarita.

    “employee conflict” – you mean, there is a conflict because they don’t pay their employees, garbage service or even clean the black mold out from food and drink areas? gross. just read the google reviews.

    Maybe the “Wash Dog” next door knows what’s happening to Kokoras’s?

    I don’t know how Korkoras has stayed in business. We’ve lived within walking  distance for 10 years and have been there ….  once. And that was when the original family had the place, we still never went back.

    Then came the change of ownership and a bunch of drama, anybody who wasn’t an insider had no idea what the huge kerfluffle was all about. Then reading here, the drama people bailed out and the ‘Greek’ menu was combined with sushi offerings.  (say what?)

    Is the TV show Restaurant Impossible still in production?  Korkoras needs you.
