Your Dallas Restaurant Openings, Closing and News for August
Three Egg Muffins
What: Skip the donut (or breakfast taco) and try this new Lower Greenville spot, offering up sweet and savory breakfast and dessert muffins. Flavors range from delicious staples like mozzarella and ham, to Instagram-ready Oreo cookie.
Where: 3607 Greenville Avenue
When: Go and get your fix ASAP—they’re open now.
What: Laurel Concepts (Wah Wah Room, Laurel Tavern) is back with another Lowest Greenville meet up spot, this time with fried chicken and boozy snow cones. And if this rooftop bar doesn't already play to your summer-loving sensibilities, there’s a temperature-driven special in which you get $1 off any beverage when it is over 99 degrees outside.
Where: 1928 Greenville Avenue
When: Only the rooftop bar is open at the moment, but a restaurant and arcade room on the ground floor will be coming later this summer.
Nuno's Tacos & Vegmex Grill
What: If you’re obsessed with the vegan Mexican fare at El Palote, you’re going to flip over this fresh new arrival from the Arias family. Much like El Palote, Nuno’s will be exclusively vegan but skirting soy and gluten in favor of whole food alternatives like jackfruit, huitlacoche, and cactus. Oh, and vegan cheese made *in house.*
Where: 8024 Spring Valley Road, Suite 8024
When: Go and taste for yourself now.
What: Big vacation vibes are coming to Henderson. Named for what is considered the ideal temperature for cocktails, 77 Degrees on Henderson will be the third location for this Austin-based concept. This multi-level rooftop bar in The Eberhard’s old spot will be specializing in island-style drinks and snacks with a laid-back, resort-worthy style.
Where: 2107 N. Henderson Avenue
When: They’re a little mum on the official opening date, but make plans to head over sometime in August.
What: A new Brazilian steakhouse is coming to North Dallas, taking over the space from formerly-shuttered Rafain. The menu details aren’t out yet, but diners can expect plenty of Prime beef, a salad bar and good cocktails.
Where: 18010 Dallas Parkway
When: 12 Cuts is set to make its debut sometime in August.
One of Dallas’ oldest buildings will soon be home to downtown’s first brewery (and beer garden). Pegasus City Brewery is expanding from its Design District location and set to open a second spot in the Dallas Power and Light Building sometime next year, with anadlog entertainment planned for the taproom and a patio that will open up to Browder Street’s food truck plaza.
Time to add another ‘impress-your-friends’ destination to your list—the Omni Dallas Hotel in downtown Dallas has recently opened a new bar in its lobby. The Pegasus Bar will be serving cocktails, wine by the bottle and glass, bottled beers and specialty cocktails like Texas Sparkle (whiskey, champagne and lemon).
There’s about to be plenty of places to get your biscuit fix in the Dallas area, with the Biscuit Bar set to open five more locations this year including one in Abilene. Go figure. The other four are all in North Texas, thankfully, including one in Deep Ellum. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu features savory and sweet biscuit sandwiches, tots and a bar offering up cold brew, beers and kombuchas on tap.
Patrons at the AllGood Cafe are about to see something new on the menu. After almost 20 years, owner Mike Snider has decided to start serving alcohol. Snider will start off slow with standard brunchy offerings like mimosas, bloody marys and French 75s, along with a bar currently under construction.
Biscuit lovers, this may be hard to hear. The Flying Biscuit Cafe, the Atlanta-based restaurant chain, has closed its two Dallas-area locations the weekend of July 7. The chain has no plans to reopen either location, leaving us scratching our heads (and mourning the loss of that homemade cranberry-apple butter).
