Capone's is no more
I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. Capone's is now closed. I got the tip from Legal Chick that there are two large trailers in front of the building, ladders inside, the lights were off, and I just called the number, and it has been disconnected.
I (originally anonymous, but you might recognize my posting style in the above link, and certainly my complaints about Paolo's), called it: "I can see them closing within the year. They're just too expensive for what they are: An expensive gimmick restaurant across from the Simplot plant."
It's a shame, since the food was actually decent, and they are a locally owned. But again, it goes to show that local owners do not always listen. If you are going to spend that kind of money, you'll go to Sanders, or even The Toasted Frog, which took up that #2 fancy spot in our restaurant market.
Now, when is that Olive Garden coming?
EDIT: Thanks to GrandForksGuy for pointing out that this could all be the result of a fire they sustained earlier in the month. If this is just a temporary closure, then I wish them luck when they reopen. I also wish them luck in finding the Italian food niche that we all hoped they would fill, but haven't so far.
I'm still sticking by my prediction of them closing unless they make significant changes.
