Moe's at the Levee closes

Moe's Southwest Grill at Newport on the Levee is no more. Don't suppose it's a huge loss, though I did get a quick and tasty burrito there once. Wonder what happens there next?

I agree, it's not a huge loss. I didn't think Moe's matched up to the quality of Chipotle or Qdoba. Plus, it seems like most people at the Levee are looking for a longer dining experience, not a quick burrito. It's really one less place for Levee employees to grab something.

I agree with Bobby. Since we're Newport residents, my husband and I know where to park for free, but many out-of-towners pay for parking in the garage or in the lot. Because they pay, they usually like to make an evening or afternoon out of it. Why pay $3 - 5 in parking for a quick burrito?

I've been kind of disappointed by the Levee thus far. The restaurants there are nice, but not veg-friendly. Excluding the bookstore, the only stores there cater to young teens. The husband and I usually see a movie every other Friday or so, but we've stopped going to the AMC because the crowds there are incredibly rude and noisy. We'd much rather make the drive to the theater in Wilder.

My mother and her boyfriend, who live 45 mins away in Maineville, go to the Levee much more than we do - and we live in walking distance of the Levee.

The bummer about it is that Moe's is/was kid friendly. Most of the restaurants at the Levee are not. It was a great place to get lunch after visiting the Aquarium or stopping in B&N to browse the children's section.

The Levee needs more restaurants for families (or at least a couple)and I am sorry - Dewey's is not family friendly budget wise.
