Way back in October we broke the news that Truluck’s was shuttering in Addison after a long and successful run in that space. The reason was not due to lack of business, the successful micro-chain is growing. It was more about an expensive lease renewal.
Today we learn that the new tenants that have been remodeling the very large space will name the casual concept “Malt”. We have little information on what the restaurant will offer at this time, but we heard that it will not be extremely heavy on alcohol. With a name like malt we were hoping to see a scotch bar go in, or the very least a high end brew pub which that section of Dallas is sorely lacking.
Look for Addison to pick up the pace as the new Whole Foods moves into the old Sackowitz space (Oh yea, we broke that story in December 2011). We had a great lunch at Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill yesterday, and always are entertained when we visit wither of Richard Chamberlain’s restaurants in Addison. It will be nice to see a non-chain restaurant take position in that part of the foodie universe.
