There has been a little bit of buzz surrounding the soon-to-open restaurant JoJo Eating House & Bar that is being constructed on Howell Street adjacent to the Quadrangle in Dallas. I haven’t seen the menu yet, but it has been described as “approachable Mediterranean menu that represents Spain, Morocco, France and Italy, yet anchored in classic French techniques”.
Chef/Owner Laurent Poupart will open JoJo next Monday, November 19th . By then we should have a proper First ook for you to see the food and new digs.
In a press release sent out today Poupart says that JoJo is a dream come true and that when he arrived in Dallas nearly four years ago he knew this was the city for him.
Poupart, who hails from Strasbourg, the capital city of the Alsace Region in Eastern France, began working at the age of 14, at Le Crocodile. Le Crocodile was a three star Michelin restaurant in his hometown. In 1988, after his four-year apprenticeship there, he graduated from The Culinary Institute of Strasbourg.
The chef has worked for a long list of celebrities and has an extensive background peppered with kudos and awards.
Jojo Eating House & Bar will open for dinner only, with lunch service beginning mid-December. Brunch service and pizza delivery will begin January 2013. JoJo Eating House & Bar is located at 2626 Howell Street, Dallas, Texas.
