San Antonio shopping center owned by company tied to Nate Paul heading for foreclosure

A shopping center that was once home to dance hall Midnight Rodeo — and is owned by an affiliate of World Class Holdings, a company founded by Nate Paul — may be headed for foreclosure next month.

Paul is the Austin businessman at the center of the scandal currently engulfing Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

The property at 12260 Nacogdoches is set to be auctioned off Nov. 3, Bexar County property records show, although county officials have repeatedly postponed foreclosure sales due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sonora Bank first pushed to foreclose in December and subsequently filed notices again this spring and summer, most recently last month. The bank’s promissory note is for roughly $4.7 million.

Two other San Antonio properties owned by entities connected to World Class were slated for foreclosure this summer.

Lenders sought to foreclose on warehouses at 639 Lanark on Aug. 4, a sale that was

San Francisco’s One Market Restaurant is now a NY-style deli pop up

The pandemic continues to demand ingenuity from restaurateurs around the Bay Area, especially in San Francisco, where fine dining restaurants are being hit particularly hard.

In short, it takes chutzpah to pivot. And One Market Restaurant’s pivot is going to make two bubbes very proud.

Tomorrow, in a one-month experiment that’s poised for success, the sophisticated Financial District restaurant with the iconic Embarcadero views is changing the bulk of its menu from fancy farm-to-table to casual New York-style deli, with hot pastrami, smoked brisket on twice-baked challah or rye bread and matzo ball soup.

“Mark (Dommen) and I have been fiddling around with this idea for a long time, and our goal is to bring the essence of New York deli food to San Francisco in a sophisticated yet accessible way,” One Market’s owner, Mike Dellar, said in a press release Tuesday.

Mark ‘n Mike’s is rooted in both men’s
