Moxie’s Grill & Bar, owned by Dallas Stars proprietor Tom Gaglardi, today announced the opening of its first U.S. location at The Crescent in Dallas, Texas this November, bringing 150 jobs to Dallas.
“Our food is a reflection of our passion and commitment to a great dining experience,” said Paul Randle, franchisee of Moxie’s Grill & Bar. “The menu is made up of high-quality, fresh ingredients delivered to guests in an energetic environment. Opening at The Crescent is the perfect way for Moxie’s to join the popular uptown dining scene.”
Moxie’s will bring international-inspired dishes created with local ingredients to Dallas. Local purveyors include Empire Baking Company, Ascension Coffee and third generation butcher, Lone Star Meats, who provides the USDA Prime Steaks at the restaurant.
