Arlington has never quite gotten the recognition it deserves for dining; at least that's what an elite Yelper told us earlier this year, when he called the suburb North Texas' most underrated foodie city. Sadly, the same might be said for Cacharel, a French restaurant and ballroom that called Arlington home for more than three decades. It closed, quietly, this week, the Star-Telegram first reported.
Fans -- many of whom had hosted their wedding receptions there -- left memories, thanks and well-wishes in the comments on the restaurant's Facebook announcement.
Owner Hans Bergmann told the Star-Telegram the restaurant closed Sunday to provide time to finish moving before the lease expires on Dec. 31. He also said there are no plans to reopen at this time.
"It's unfortunate, but that's the way things worked out," he told the Star-Telegram.
