Horne & Dekker on Henderson Avenue is closed
Even despite its popular Sunday brunch.
DALLAS Horne & Dekker, the Henderson Avenue restaurant opened in mid-2010 by partners Shawn Horne and Flynn Dekker, closed on Monday. According to a source connected with the restaurant, the staff was informed on Monday night.
The duo shared lots of collective experience: Dekker worked for Fogo de Chao and Horne brought with him a batch of recipes from Kitchen 1924, his most previous restaurant in Lakewood.
Rumors about an impending closure had circulated for a couple of months. Although Horne's name was still on the marquee, he was already gone by the beginning of 2011. He recently announced that he'd be opening Monty's Cafe in Fort Worth with former Flynn & Dekker chef Corey Smith.
That little plaza where Horne & Dekker resided is pretty hit-and-miss, and the H&D space has been hardest hit, with two other restaurants having come and gone before H&D came along: Pulcinella pizza, then Urbino Pizza e Pasta. Natsumi closed its branch next-door a year ago.
Dekker was unavailable for comment.
