Safety Glass to move, after 72 years in Bishop Arts

Brian Dimock, the third-generation owner of his family’s business, says he is moving Safety Glass Co. out of the Bishop Arts District. Dimock’s grandfather opened the business in 1940, and Dimock says he needs more space.

He plans to open in a warehouse space at Sylvan and Seale in January or February, once the city issues him a certificate of occupancy. After that, he plans to lease out the 2,600-square-foot space at 316 W. Davis.

Next door, Sarah Lombardi plans to open two restaurants. One is Oak Cliff Mercantile, in the building known by the same name. A “coming soon” sign for OC Mercantile describes it as an “eatery, taproom & commons.” In the former El Padrino taco stand, Lombardi is planning Dog House, serving hot dogs and frozen custard.

    I’d rather have El Padrino than processed chicken lips and pig butts. The custard better be good!

    Good for him! He’s the best glass guy in OC. I hope he makes a fortune leasing that space to another overpriced restaurant with no parking. After all, what’s one more?

    That is so funny and to top it off nowhere to park. I think it is becoming over done at Bishop Arts.
