When we interviewed Monica Greene early in 2011, her BEE: Best Enchiladas Ever had just opened. Greene, a fixture on the Dallas restaurant scene since the early ’90s, wanted to expand the concept into a chain of franchises similar to Chipotle.

Unfortunately, BEE has closed.

A message from the official BEE facebook page Sunday:

To All Dear Friends and Patrons: Bee closed it’s doors for business today. Thank you for your support for the past two years. Love to all.

This past year was not kind to Greene, who in 1992 opened Monica’s Aca Y Alla in Deep Ellum. That restaurant closed in May 2012, which was a surprising move since Greene told us in 2011: “We’re hanging on there, and we hope to be there another 30 or 40 years. Monica’s will always be there.”

In September, she opened Monica’s Nueva Cocina on McKinney Avenue, but parted ways with that restaurant, which is now called Maracas, last month.

    Does anybody have any information about the Sunshine Home for Children that was on Ewing back in the 1950’s?

    Except Monica’s Nueva Cocina opened on Cedar Springs, not McKinney Avenue, and it was Aca Y Alla in Deep Ellum that changed to Maracas.
