It’s been a bit of a slow food news month, but we’re not really complaining. It’s difficult enough to narrow down the Galentine’s and Valentine’s Day lists already. But in case you’d like just a few more choices, here are some spots to check out (and where you can still find the best chocolate in the Metroplex).

The new year has already been a busy one for the Downtown Hotel Sheraton with a handful of new restaurants underway for January and February. Keep your eyes peeled for The Parlor and Open Market, both set to open in early February, per CultureMap. Open Market will serve as an all-day market for on-the-go guests and locals, offering up sandwiches, salads, and other New Year resolution-friendly items. The Parlor will be added to our downtown cocktail rotation, serving craft cocktails and small bites daily from 5 PM to midnight.

Flora Street Cafe is already technically open, but expect some changes soon. Tim Byres, formerly of Smoke, has partnered with Stephan Pyles to switch things up a little and make it a more casual experience. We’re hoping the new menu can fill the Smoke-shaped void in our hearts.

Burger lovers, you may want to get yourselves acquainted with Hammbone Willy’s. Currently slated for a Plano opening at 2208 Dallas Parkway on February 11, they’re planning to launch 10 DFW locations in the next three years. Expect counter-service burgers in a rustic chic setting with plenty of game-watching screens in view.

Arizona-based artisanal pizza is headed to The Hill in February, with Sauce opening its third Texas location at 8185 Walnut Hill Lane. This fast-casual spot will be staying consistent with the other locations, offering fresh salads, pasta, and handmade pizzas with tons of gluten-free options.

Dude, Sweet Chocolate is returning back to its roots, closing both their Lower Greenville and Plano locations this month. But fear not, fellow chocoholics: we still have the Bishop Arts flagship and the Inwood Road kitchen.
