Tradiciones Closes for Remodeling

I can't say I didn't see this one coming.

Pro's Ranch Market has shuttered its adjoining Mexican restaurant, Tradiciones, for remodeling and a menu overhaul. The date of its reopening hasn't been determined.

While the sprawling, festive sit-down eatery was a New Times favorite in its early days, last year I found the place in such a diminished state that I re-reviewed it -- and the results weren't pretty.

The place was a shadow of its former self, and the food was definitely not up to par.

If this closing means a true makeover for the place (and not, as in the case of so many local businesses, a less splashy way of actually shutting down for good), then I applaud it.
