Call it the curse of Lake Las Vegas. Brooklyn's casual American restaurant has shuttered at the Montelago Village after less than three months in business. Chains are on the entrance and an attorney's letter is stuck to the front door.
Debuting in February, the 6,440-square-foot former home of the Black Pepper Grill served East Coast-inspired dishes including burgers, New York-style pizza and their "famous triple-decker" sandwiches.
With no attempt at meaningful advertising or creating an engaging social media presence, the already challenged location failed to grab the extra and very necessary attention needed at the struggling retail and dining center. This is the second Montelago Village closure of the year, after Bernard's Bistro by the Lake quietly vanished back in January.
Montelago's remaining dining options are Sunset & Vines, the Sonrisa Grill, Italian from Luna Rossa, Auld Dubliner's pub grub and the latest arrival, Lobsterman’s Restaurant.
