Xoco grill - closed for good?

Or just a temporary blip?
I don't know, but Swadesh is.
Swadesh eh. Who knew?
Naughty big grin
That is enough. This thread is about Xoco, please stay on topic.

Fulwich Dox

Louisa.
Anyone know why Xoco closed ?
Fulwich Dox might do .....


"It would seem none of that had anything to do with why it closed..

Doxy"
Unpronounceable name?

If I were to know why it closed and posted it here..

I would be inundated with posts such as :-

Foxy's talking shite again.. (from ££££ )

Where's your proof ? (from Sue)

and this thread would just take off with abuse..

Anyone deny that. ?

Dox
PM me Foxy. I'm dying to know.. *taps nose*

I went to the place once and had the best Jalfrezi I'd had on LL, ever.
So that was a winner for me.
Shame it's closed - Foxy did you say someone told you it was raided ?
I wonder if that was by health & safety, drug squad, or immigration / customs.
Of those options, surely only a H&S raid could keep it closed ?

Immigration raid could keep it closed too depending on circumstances.
Oh, OK.
Ouch, that must cost a business.

Yes! I'll deny it!

Because if you posted it up here and it was accurate, why would anybody say any of the above? Assuming that it was a plausible explanation for the closure, of course.

On the other thread, you intimated that you knew why Xoco had closed, and then said "I do not know and I'm not going there".

If you don't know, why would you not go there?

You must admit, Foxy or Doxy, it's very confusing, especially when you more or less tell people to STFU.
Their Facebook page is still up and says:

"Xoco in east-dulwich is the most elegant and exclusive cocktail bar & resturaunt with its chic décor and delicious grill food."

Last post was 3 March.

Their takeaway menu is still up on their website, as well, though nothing much else is (except, ironically, WE ARE OPEN)

I don't know... I was told something by an EDF poster in the EDT something that was so incredible , I did not believe it.
I took it as someone winding me up, expecting me to jump on here and make a prat of myself and possibly libel myself.

I took the rumor with a pinch of salt. If it was true, I would of thought it would of been in the press. ???

Some folk on this forum just can't resist winding poor Foxy up. It's not fair to constantly call him up about everything he says when others do exactly the same thing. Many of us are absolutely worn out with all this constant bickering. Some of us just want a nice peaceful afternoon browsing the forum for some intelligent conversation, but others just love a good old finger pointing session. Totally uncalled for. Some growing up needs to be done me thinks!

Er, pots and kettles, Louisa, but nice try smiling smiley

Unless your reflection has a lawyer

Draw your own conclusions. I've been told that this was a police raid, not an immigration raid. But of course Foxy & Louisa are quite correct that we should await any criminal charges before drawing any conclusions. And further comment on here could potentially be defamatory (apart from the Sue v Foxy v Louisa joust, which is both ongoing and enjoyable). Enough said.
A guy from there told me they were re-opening on march 16th selling indian food .
