From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

EatZi's was a chain of bakery, gourmet takeout markets, and restaurants, created by Philip J. Romano. It was based in Dallas, Texas, and proposes high end products. Only the Dallas location remains open. The chain's Atlanta, Houston, and Rockville locations abruptly closed in November 2006, while the Chicago location closed in November 2007.

EatZi's offered a wide range of specialty breads, cakes, and home meal replacements, as well as wine and cheese.

Classical music or tunes by crooners such as Frank Sinatra were permanently played in the markets, with an emphasis on the Four Seasons by Vivaldi. EatZi's was very cautious about competition and didn't allow any photos inside the restaurants.

EatZi's can be compared to the gourmet takeout section of Central Market or Whole Foods Market, which can be considered as EatZi's larger competitors.

On November 16, 2006, EatZi's announced the immediate closing of the two Atlanta locations, as well as those in Houston and Maryland. In November 2007 the Chicago location abruptly closed. The Dallas location, which has been purchased by Romano, remains open. Management has not commented on the closings.

Trivia

  • Philip J. Romano is also the creator of Fuddruckers and Romano's Macaroni Grill.
  • Following their time in the White House, President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura rely on EatZi's and friends since neither likes to cook. [1]
