Last week a lockout notice was posted in the window of Les Ba’get, 1717 W. 34th St., leaving residents unsure if the popular Vietnamese café would continue to serve the neighborhood.
A representative with the restaurant said Tuesday that it had been closed but would resume operations Thursday. Neither Les Ba’get nor the landlord of the development, Crescere Capital, responded to questions about the lockout notice.
According to the notice, Les Ba’get was in default under its lease and was notified as such on Aug. 26.
When the COVID-19 pandemic reached Houston in March, Les Ba’get temporarily closed its dine-in services for 15 days, while continuing to-go operations. On March 20, the restaurant announced it would temporarily close for all operations. On May 6, it reopened for to-go services and on June 4, it opened for limited dine-in seating.

Rakkan Ramen is expected to open in March.
