The Addison City Council recently approved three new restaurant projects, two of which hope to open as early late spring in 2015. The former site of Truluck’s on Belt Line Road at Quorum Drive will become a Southern gastropub called Ida Claire owned by the folks over at Whiskey Cake (among other concepts). Featuring an extended patio and major landscaping renovations, Ida Claire is expected to open its doors early next summer.
Formerly Duke’s Roadhouse, 4180 Belt Line Rd at Midway Road will be subdivided into two separate new restaurants. About one-third of the space will be a “casual taco” concept called Taqueria La Ventana, owned by Mike Karns who also has Mesa Maya and El Fenix. Oh, and Snuffer’s. The other portion of the building will become the new home for long-time Addison hamburger and cheese fries icon, Snuffer’s Restaurant & Bar, which is relocating from its current Midway Road location. After addressing parking and landscape issues, they hope to open by late spring of 2015.
