Porcinos, a new restaurant in Addison, brought to us by the owners of Edith’s in Mockingbird Station, is set to open APRIL 12 with veteran Executive Chef Damian Edmos (most recently at Princi Italia) running the kitchen.
Porcinos will be a place to gather with friends and enjoy classic comfort cooking with Southern influences, in an upscale farmhouse atmosphere.
Porcino is an Italian word that refers to swine, and pork will appear on in numerous menu items including their signature baby back ribs and irresistible rolled pork roast stuffed with lemon and herbs and paired with grits.
But the name Porcinos is also chosen for its symbolic value: Hogs are an animal where every part gets used, from snout to tail – an approach that the restaurant will follow, right down to making their own sausage in-house.
Porcinos will boast a rotisserie on which they’ll slow-roast meats and fowl for the chicken and porchetta dishes.
The restaurant will open at 5015 Beltline Road, on the ground floor of the Spectrum Center office building at Belt Line Road and the Dallas North Tollway, in the former Chaucer’s space. They’ve executed a breathtaking design that evokes an elegant farmhouse, with herbs and greenery complementing cedar and pine plank walls with bronze metal accents.
Inside, they’ve constructed a 360-degree inside/outside bar that serves the front patio and dining room. They will offer fresh juiced organic fruits and vegetables in the cocktail recipes.
The space boasts two patios, one covered overlooking Belt Line, and another that wraps around the side with crushed granite and an outside bar with local draft beers.
Porcinos will be open for lunch and dinner (with breakfast served all-day). A separate weekend brunch menu on both Saturday and Sunday will offer organic prosecco mimosas and an all-organic pigskin bloody mary drink.
