It was a sad day when BL Bistro announced they were closing their door... but maybe not as sad as we thought.

After 18 years of partnering together on BL Bistro, the two partners decided to go their own way. After BL's final day in business this Saturday, June 30th, the building will be transformed to a new restaurant called "The Gem".

The Gem will not feature all of the same menus. However, a few of your BL favorites may pop up here or there. Along with a more family-friendly atmosphere the Gem will also have overall cheaper prices than BL did ranging from $7-$12 a plate.

Still wondering how you can live in Amarillo without Bl Bistro's steaks? No worries! The other named partner in BL will be opening their own steakhouse called "Prime Chophouse & Lounge", in the Townsquare Village and is set to open soon. Their up-scale feel will make you forget you're in Amarillo.
