Eatzi's Market & Bakery is a chain of bakery, gourmet takeout markets, and restaurants, created by Philip J. Romano. It was based in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex, and proposes high end products. Four locations in Dallas remain open. The chain's Atlanta, Houston, and Rockville locations abruptly closed in November 2006, while the Chicago location closed in November 2007.

Eatzi's offered a wide range of specialty breads, cakes, and home meal replacements, as well as wine and cheese.

Classical music or tunes by crooners such as Frank Sinatra were permanently played in the markets, with an emphasis on the Four Seasons by Vivaldi.[citation needed]

Eatzi's can be compared to the gourmet takeout section of Central Market or Whole Foods Market, which can be considered as Eatzi's larger competitors.

On November 16, 2006, Eatzi's announced the immediate closing of the two Atlanta locations, as well as those in Houston and Maryland. In November 2007 the Chicago location abruptly closed.

Today[edit]

Eatzi's Market & Bakery has four locations in Dallas, Oak Lawn Ave., Lovers Lane, Grapevine, and in west Plano, Texas. They plan to open their 5th & 6th stores in Fort Worth, TX and Dallas, TX in 2017.[1]

In Washington, Bush spoke longingly of a quiet post-presidency that would allow him to bring Laura coffee in bed and meander into work around 9 a.m., but he has struggled to slow down, friends said. Bush almost always arrives at his Dallas office by 7:30 a.m., a few minutes before many of his employees. He works on his book with the help of a speechwriter, leaves for a late afternoon bike ride and spends his evenings reading or watching televised golf or baseball. Neither he nor Laura likes to cook, so they have relied on food brought by friends or prepared meals from EatZi's, a local market.
