There is plenty of activity gong on at local restaurants and we have the scoop for you today. Be looking for a handful of restaurants to open up in the coming weeks, as well as some changes. We have a few items for you to savor.

Oishii opens tonight at 5pm. We get more calls abou this restaurant than any other in Dallas. The local’s favorite suffered damage due to a fire last December. It took nearly a year, but fans can enjoy their menu favorites tonight, finally.

Souk opens in Trinity Groves tonight at 5pm. Souk is a Moroccan bistro and bazaar owned by restaurateur Yaser Khalaf and cheffed by Najat Kaanache, who Yaser told us some time back would eventually be his corporate chef. Yaser owns Baboush, Farnatchi and Ketchup. Baboush is one of our very favorite Dallas restaurants, so we look for big things to come out of Souk. In addition to the new restaurant, you can also find some interesting retail items for sale at this Bazaar.   


Also in Trinity Groves, look for LUCK to finally open up for business. This is the unique beer-centric kitchen that will serve many menu items infused with beer, or beer inspired. We also noticed that Kitchen LTO is now open for luncheon service.  Trinity Groves is finally taking shape.

Klyde Warren Park’s restaurant, Savor, officially opened for lunch today, just in time for the park’s one year anniversary celebration next week Oct. 24-27. Lunch service will begin at   11 a.m. Monday – Sunday.

Kozy Kitchen opened their second location this week at the very odd location at 4895 LBJ Freeway. Amid construction, the location will serve only breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday.  Look for plenty of omelettes, sandwiches and tacos.

On McKinney Avenue, Nickel and Rye officially open tonight for all your cocktail needs. This is at the old Uptown Bar and grill space that we told you about some months ago.  Nickel and Rye is located at 2523 McKinney Ave in beautiful Uptown Dallas.
