Eat This: Noteworthy Dallas Restaurant Openings & Closings
Due to the dog days of summer, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with staying indoors until fall arrives. And thankfully there are plenty of recently-opened DFW eateries that offer up a break from the heat (or at least a bit of patio shade) with unique menu offerings and eye-catching interiors.
Here are a few recently opened Dallas/Fort Worth area restaurants that are getting major buzz, along with some highly-anticipated openings that you should mark in your calendar.

WHERE TO EAT IN SEPTEMBER
Addison is currently mourning a longtime breakfast spot. After 15 years of serving up healthy breakfasts and delicious pancakes, Dream Cafe permanently closed on August 12.
While the restaurant offerings at Knox-Henderson are always changing, this one was definitely a surprise. Mesero, the Mex/Tex-Mex chain founded by Mico Rodriquez, closed its Henderson location on August 19 due to leasing issues.
After less than a year, Trinity Groves’ traditional Spanish tapas bar Tapas Castile closed its doors on August 25. In a release, owner Phil Romano said that the restaurant wasn't doing sufficient business. "In spite of the positive reviews of the food and wine program at Tapas Castile, the restaurant has not performed well enough for us financially to continue with the concept," Romano said.
More bad news from the Knox Street Original Wild About Harry's. In addition to the original location’s closure in April, the quirky custard and hot dog shop has closed its outlet at 111 S. Hall St. in Deep Ellum due to leasing issues. According to Culturemap, a spokesperson stated that the shop was sad about the closure and would "miss the friendly Deep Ellum community."
Due to the construction of a new office building, Knox Street’s beloved Highland Park Pharmacy will be permanently closed for business. Be sure to pop in and pay tribute on or before the doors close on September 9.
