photoHattie’s owner Tony Alvarez has leased the Bishop Arts District taco stand that used to house El Padrino.

Alvarez is planning “his own concept” for the space, says Monte Anderson of Options Real Estate.

We left a message for Alvarez Tuesday but haven’t heard back yet.

Anderson says Alvarez also leased the adjacent Oak Cliff Mercantile Building for an office and a gallery concept that is still being developed. Alvarez also is subleasing a space in the mercantile building for a concept that Anderson says he can’t talk about yet, but it’s not a restaurant, he says.

El Padrino closed in November 2012 because the building owner decided to lease the space to Sarah Lombardi, who had planned a hot dogs and frozen custard concept there but backed out this past May.
