The barbecue restaurant’s lease expired and was not renewed, said Kristin Moore, spokeswoman for Brixmor Property Group, the New York company that operates Haymarket Square shopping center where Famous Dave’s was located.
Famous Dave’s had been in Haymarket since 1998. The Famous Dave’s restaurant at 1720 22nd St. in West Des Moines is still open. Famous Dave’s management did not return phone calls.
Moore said Brixmor is seeking a new tenant for the building.
In other Haymarket Square news: Aspen Athletic Club will move into a 25,000-square-foot space in the center, relocating from Haymarket Mall down the street. The move frees up space in Haymarket Mall for Harbor Freight, which is opening a second Des Moines location. Its other store is at 1010 Army Post Road in Des Moines.
