Chino Shuttered, Enter “Sum Dang Good Chinese”

Upon first opening in 2014, Trinity Groves has been a culinary incubator for some of Dallas’s most exciting concepts. The original idea was for restaurants to take up temporary residence before moving on to other things. Chino Chinatown, which opened six years ago, has proven to be one of the incubator’s most successful concepts, but now it’s time to move on.

We broke the news that Chino was to close on our Facebook some weeks ago. For more up-to-date  restaurant information, please join us  in conversation at the CraveDFW Facebook page where we are often first in Dallas to give restaurant updates. Continue reading

By now most of you have heard of the Trinity Groves project located just over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge (affectionately known as Large Marge). I know this because most evenings require a reservation to beat the growing population that are clamoring to dine on the boardwalk that contains seven lovely restaurants. But what most don’t know is that nearly every restaurant is open for lunch and they are spreading great deals on the same cuisine you find in the evening. That means if you work downtown you can make a 3 minute drive (including the free parking) across that beautiful bridge and dine like kings.    Continue reading

Since that time much of what Romano promised has come to fruition in the form of a handful of unique incubator restaurants. Today marks the opening of yet another concept in Chino Chinatown, the brainchild of Uno Immanivong and Adrian Verdin.     Continue reading
