After Gravitas opened its stylish doors in a former sandwich shop space on Taft in 2005, Texas Monthly quickly dubbed it the best restaurant opening in Texas for the year. Just over six years later, it looks like those doors are closed for good.

Amid reports that the restaurant was being cleared out on Sunday, there was no answer to Gravitas' phone, reservations at Open Table have been taken offline and attempts to contact the owners at Liquid Gold Hospitality Group have not been successful.

Gravitas perhaps never recovered from the foodie fight that rocked Houston in 2009 when executive chef Jason Gould, a key part of Gravitas' success, attempted to buy out owner Scott Tycer's share of the restaurant. Gould contended that he was an unofficial partner due to his citizenship status, which Tycer denied. Gould quit amidst consistent but unconfirmed rumors that the fight between the two got physical.

Tycer sold Gravitas to Stephen Ross and his partners in Liquid Gold in March 2011, but it seems the new ownership couldn't bring back the Gould-era appeal.

Have you been to Gravitas lately?

Update: Ross confirmed to CultureMap that Gravitas did close over the weekend but adds that he and his partners sold the restaurant back to Scott Tycer in November and that they had no role in the closure.

Update #2: Tycer's Kraftsman Bakers LTD has issued a statement on the closing:

Regrettably, we have to shut down Gravitas Restaurant effective Sunday, January 8, 2012.
