Valentino’s former sideboard will become a medical clinic | Local business news

The building that housed a Valentino’s restaurant for nearly five decades will be repurposed.

Holmes Lake Family Medicine & Internal Medicine, currently located at 6900 Van Dorn St., Suite 24, will move just down the street to a renovated space previously occupied by Valentino’s Grand Italian Buffet.

The company announced in October that the restaurant at 2701 S. 70th St., which had been closed since fall 2020, was closing permanently. He said in a press release at the time that labor shortages and the effects of COVID-19 were to blame for the shutdown.

Valentino’s had been there since 1974, with the buffet concept being instituted in 2002.

Holmes Lake Family Medicine & Internal Medicine, part of the Bryan Physician Network, is expected to begin seeing patients at the new location in late 2022 once renovations are complete.

“The new space for Holmes Lake Family Medicine & Internal Medicine will greatly benefit our patients,” said Sara Morris, chief operating officer at the Bryan Physician Network, in a statement. “This new location will allow us to increase our square footage and the on-site services we offer. It is easily accessible and minutes from our current location.”

Bryan did not provide a cost estimate for the project, but a building permit filed with the city pegged the cost of construction at $2.5 million.
