Just four months after opening its doors, an Ingleside Avenue restaurant is fighting eviction.
The owner of Tropical Flava and his landlord are fighting in court over the condition of his building, and who's responsible for fixing it.
In April, James Duncombe finally opened his new restaurant, in Macon's Ingleside Village. He calls it an authentic Caribbean restaurant, serving dishes like oxtail, red beans and rice, and jerk chicken.
Duncombe worked on the building for more than two years to get ready. But now, he's already facing eviction. He says his legal problems with the landlord are not his fault.
"It's raining, everything is flooding out, the mold is growing on the wall, the baseboards we put down were eventually bowed," he says.
