Closed: NonieLast week, Nonie closed again. In March 2005, long-time owners Chris and Suzi Leonard sold Nonie to two Sonoran shrimp farmers who sold it to Mike Dixon and Vivian Stanchfield in November 2005. That's just too much turnover in so little time. Though Nonie sported a recent new sign, its menu was muddled. Maybe the second and third owners relied on Nonie's popularity and didn't try hard enough? Maybe there can only be one Nonie because part of the charm was the people who owned it? Maybe the next occupant has to find their own niche, name and really do their homework?
