Your Dallas Restaurant Openings, Closing and News for July


What: This glitzy new addition to Cedar Springs is open for business, serving up craft cocktails in a posh, open concept lounge. The menu includes rare and hard-to-find liquors, plus hand-crafted drinks made with fresh ingredients, such as spiked strawberry lemonade and cucumber spritzers. And yes, there’s a patio.
Where: 3900 Cedar Springs Road
When: Make your weekend plans now; they’re open as of June 30.

What: Get excited: Chicago’s Foxtrot is coming to Uptown. The 3,600-square-foot convenience store and cafe with delivery service will be offering indoor/outdoor seating, a full-service coffee bar, packaged foods, beer on tap and wine by the class. And as a bonus, expect to see local makers like Emporium Pies, Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters and The Mozzarella Company, along with an assortment of small gifts from local brands like Flower Gals Co.
Where: 2822 McKinney Avenue
When: It is open now.

What: Health-conscious casual fare awaits at this new Victory Park cafe. From the same folks that brought us Billy Can Can, Hatchways will be serving breakfast, lunch and early evening meals with vegan/vegetarian-friendly options and an emphasis on whole foods.
Where: 2346 Victory Park Lane
When: Treat yourself to some healthy fare now—their doors are open.

What: Get your summer seafood on at The Sound At Cypress Waters. This North Irving spot will be open daily from 10 AM to 11 PM, serving up po’ boys, shrimp and oysters, crab legs, grits and gumbo and more.
Where: 9600 Wharf Road
When: Flying Fish is open now.

What: Stiky Ribz took over Louie King’s short reign on Lowest Greenville a few weeks ago and in a short time, they’ve proven to be adept at classic Texas BBQ. Helps that they have a main location in Forney, we bet. A stop in is like a trip to the Hill Country: brisket, tall boys and a sense of tranquility.
Where: 1916 Greenville Ave
When: Smoke ’em if you got ’em, and they got ’em 11 AM to 9 PM (or sold out) Thursday through Sunday


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.
