The ninety-year old building Old Neighborhood Grill calls home in Park Place Village began life in the 20s as Charlie’s Nickel Inn and later became Emory Morris Cake Shop. In 1998, Peter Schroder opened his restaurant, where many residents from the surrounding neighborhoods like Mistletoe Heights, Berkeley Place and Fairmount come to begin their days. Through the best and worst of times, Schroder has seen life come up around the eatery that lives up to its name by acting as a reasonable catalyst for the village’s dynamic growth. When Nehme Elbitar and his Lebanese eatery Chadra became neighbors across the street years later, he brought renewed energy to the village and both restaurants continue to entice growing numbers of customers. Led by the efforts of Near Southside, Inc., the streets and sidewalks of Park Place Village have undergone significant renovations to improve pedestrian and bike access. These improvements, in addition to construction of Baylor Surgical Center, present further peaks of traffic for the area.
