Shortly after celebrating its 40th anniversary, Texas French Bread was destroyed in a fire in late January

The fire caused roughly $1.1 million in structural damage and $500,000 to equipment and other content.

It was determined the fire started above the kitchen.

The building dates back to the early 50s. It originally was a grocery store, and then an Italian Restaurant which eventually became an Austin music venue known as the Rome Inn.
