Café Victoria will join the Victory Park development in downtown Dallas as its first coffee shop.

“A coffee shop has been the number one request since we started implementing the retail leasing and marketing of Victory Park,” said Daniel Goldware, director of leasing at Trademark. “Café Victoria is a perfect fit because it truly is a neighborhood establishment founded by one of Victory’s own residents. It is also an important component of the continued activation of Victory Park Lane.”

Owned and operated by current Victory Park resident, Luciana Gómez, Café Victoria will serve premium coffee and homemade pastries. The shop is scheduled to open in January 2016 and will be located on Victory Park Lane, next to Buda Juice.  Continue reading

18th and Vine BBQ to Open Oct 6th


18th & Vine BBQ,  an upscale Kansas City barbeque, full-service restaurant and bar,  will open to the public on Tuesday, October 6th at 4100 Maple Avenue in Dallas across from Crow Holdings’ Old Parkland business offices.

Husband and wife team Matt and Kimi Dallman (original creators of the concept), in partnership with chef Scott Gottlich, have developed a unique menu in a comfortable yet casually chic environment designed by Brooke Roberson Interiors with build out by Mitchell Garman Architects. “Traditional Kansas City BBQ will always be a part of the menu options for those interested in a pure barbeque experience.
