Moe's opening Crestline/ Mafiaozo's closing?

I wondered if anyone heard about Fire being replaced by Moe's BBQ and possibly Mafiaozo's closing

    Have not heard that but Mafiaoza's is always packed. If they are closing, it's not due to lack of business.

      IF they are closing, it probably has more to do with the true nature of the business than a lack of customers. I don't know any details and haven't heard that they're closing, but the one thing I do know is that Mafiaoza's isn't there to make a profit. :P

          Mafiaoza's is some kind of loophole-exploiting tax shelter for some Nashville attorneys. It's not really a secret, I guess.

            They were packed Friday night around 7 although we got a table outside quickly. Went with their pick 3 with bresaola, Parmigiano-Reggiano and tapenade and a medium red pepper and prosciutto pizza which was better than I expected.

          This was awhile back. Last I heard is Oteys may be expanding to Fire's space.
          Never heard anymore about mafiaozo's closing!

              my mother heard that Otey's was going to expand over to Fire-anyone else heard any news on Fire's space?

                I went to Taco Mama yesterday- (same owners as otey's) very good but pricey
                didn't ask them but heard from another owner that they heard Moe's was moving into Fire's space

                also went to Mafiaozo's recently it was SO packed -I heard they make 5M a year..
