From a new southern restaurant in Addison to the return of a favorite beer garden in West Dallas, here are three new North Texas restaurants to add to your must-see list.
Written by the seasons
380 Melba Street
Newly opened at Bishop Arts, this new farm-to-table restaurant comes from the same minds as the nearby Tribal All Day Cafe. The menu includes small plates like seasonal tempura, kimchi pancakes, and baby bok choy with ginger chili. There’s an extensive salad menu with veggies such as roasted pumpkin, rainbow carrots, wood-fired avocado, and chili charred Napa cabbage. When it comes to main courses, whether you’re craving 44 Farms steak, mahi mahi, or seafood stew, there’s something for everyone.
As per the name of the restaurant, all ingredients and dishes will change seasonally.
River Oaks District
The foundry reopened
2303 Pittman Street
After closing during the pandemic, West Dallas The Foundry’s concert hall and beer garden reopened. Along with it, the favorite fried chicken Chicken Scratch has also been refreshed. (Although they now call the set The Foundry to avoid confusion.)
The new management, Shane Spillers (owner of Eno’s Pizza Tavern and Brewed), has taken up the torch. The menu still features the delicious chicken that Chicken Scratch was known for, as well as sides like mac and cheese. Sunday brunch offers chicken and waffles and more from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Spatch Cuisine & Cocktails
5000, belt line road
This new restaurant of American cuisine with Southern influences opens its doors tonight for dinner in Addison. The 5,000-square-foot space includes a modern dining room and outdoor patio, plus a full-service bar with craft beers, wines, and cocktails. The lunch and brunch menus will launch after the initial opening, but you can try the loaded Haystack fries, fettuccine alfredo, stuffed egg salad and more for dinner. There are even donuts for dessert, including chocolate ganache, classic powdered sugar, and crÃ¨me brÃ»lÃ©e with banana cream.
Open at the same time, Sonny & Sons will be a casual spot within Spatch offering hot fried chicken, half birds, sandwiches and donuts.
