The Black-eyed Pea restaurant on Camp Bowie Boulevard, the only remaining location in Fort Worth, has a “temporarily closed” sign on the door, with a promise that “We will let you know when we are able to reopen.”

The Black-eyed Pea in the Arlington Highlands shopping center is still open. Phone calls to the north Arlington location (1400 N. Collins St.) and the Hurst location (900 Airport Freeway) shortly before 5 p.m. Monday were unanswered, although they were during normal business hours. A call to a north Dallas location was also unanswered.

In December, Arlington-based Restaurants Acquisition I, Llc., the owner of Black-eyed Pea restaurants in Texas, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization, saying that it had been unable to attract new capital in the last two years and had closed 15 stores in the wake of shrinking profits.

It is not clear yet if the temporary closure on Camp Bowie is related to the bankruptcy filing. We have emails out seeking comment from Black-eyed Pea representatives.
