This is a post by N&O restaurant critic Greg Cox:
Norberto Meccia, owner of the Argentinean restaurant Pampas in North Raleigh’s Lafayette Village, has closed the restaurant after just six months. Citing differences with the landlord, Meccia says he will explore options for a new location.
In the meantime, fans of Pampas’ Argentinean and Cuban fare can get their fix at his other restaurant, Oakwood Café (300 E. Edenton St.; 919-828-5994; oakwoodcaferaleigh.com) in downtown Raleigh. Meccia says that, contrary to earlier reports, he does not plan to sell that restaurant.
