Your Dallas Restaurant Openings, Closing and News for July
Staying in the city this summer? Treat yourself to a faux island experience at Bourbon & Banter. The Statler’s speakeasy is transforming into an island tiki paradise for the month of July, with themed decor, uniforms and a special tropical menu that includes tiki shots, tiki cocktails and shareable drinks.
Can’t decide on a cocktail in Deep Ellum? Peruse Hide’s brand new drink menu, helpfully categorized by taste profile, including spirited, brave, comforting and refreshing. (Our personal favorite? The Soul Toll with sotol, banana, acid-adjusted pineapple, cardamaro, ancho reyes and mole.)
Las Palmas, Uptown’s newest Tex Mex spot that we like very much, is now serving brunch. The menu includes migas, chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, carne asada, breakfast tacos, chorizo breakfast burrito, chorizo frittata, chorizo eggs benedict and an omelet. And yes, they all pair well with that delicious sopapilla cheesecake.
Bad and good news for barbecue enthusiasts that frequent Lower Greenville: Louie King has mysteriously closed. There’s not a lot of information out there as to what exactly happened, but here’s the good news: the popular Forney spot Stiky Ribz has already moved in and taken over. But you already knew that because you read Label Local’s food coverage.
And just like that, Circo is gone as soon as it arrived. There was plenty of buzz surrounding their opening date, but this dramatic exit is definitely written on the wall. A spokesman from the company that licensed the Circo brand to Dallas operator Lauren Santagati told the Dallas Morning News that the restaurant might reopen in that location or elsewhere in Dallas, possibly without Santagati.
The Statler Hotel’s R&B has closed. The ramen and bao restaurant opened in July 2018 as a project of then-chef Angela Hernandez, who left the Statler in December.
