Postino Wine Cafe, the eclectic and funky wine café making its way out of Phoenix & Houston, is opening their first location in Dallas on Monday, April 19 offering lunch, happy hour, dinner and an equally lively weekend brunch.
Located in the historic district of Deep Ellum, at 2647 Main Street, Dallas, TX 75226 and sharing a stand-alone building with local favorite Merit Coffee, the new restaurant and bar features a carefully selected wine program as well as an approachable yet sophisticated food menu.
With a motto of “drinking wine at lunch is not a crime”, the vibrant and passionate co-founder, Lauren Bailey explains, “Deep Ellum instantly caught our attention with its deep-rooted history, incredible buildings and lively community. We quickly fell in love with the art, the other businesses and most of all the people who make it such a special place. I had goosebumps when I first stepped into the building and knew in my gut that was the one.”
They say, “Everything’s bigger in Texas,” and at Vidorra, the phrase is taking on a whole new meaning.
As a fun, bold Mexican-inspired restaurant that doesn’t play small, Vidorra’s latest in menu innovation led to the creation of a four-pound beauty, El Jefe – an 18-inch giant jalapeño cheddar flour tortilla fried until crispy, then stuffed with Vidorra’s signature taco beef, chorizo, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, queso, pico de gallo, guacamole and jalapeños.
Serving two to six for $28, this culinary prodigy joins Vidorra’s lineup of other giant offerings – like the Large Format Vidorrita or Guadalajaran – that are perfect for sharing. Or, if you’re so inclined, keep it all for yourself. Vidorra won’t judge.
“At Vidorra, we enjoy taking an adventurous approach to celebrating Mexican food, drinks and culture,” said Culinary Director, Rodman Shields. “We’re already well-known for our over-the-top cocktails, so true to our innovative spirit, we had to match that vibe with a taco so big our guests won’t believe it until they see it. Food should be an experience, and the El Jefe delivers on that.”
El Jefe is now available at Vidorra’s locations in Deep Ellum and Addison. For more information, visit vidorrarestaurants.com
Serious Pizza is set to start offering guests a bigger, better experience with giant pies, killer merch, weekend DJs and more, when it reopens on Friday, Feb. 26. To celebrate, opening day festivities will include a dough-throwing showcase in the dining room throughout the day, as well as regular features such as a special, branded T-shirt gifted to the last person in line and a DJ spinning music from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m
Upward Projects – the restaurant group known for its cult-like following and artful restoration of historically relevant buildings in fun, funky neighborhoods – is bringing its popular Postino WineCafé to Dallas for the first time. Scheduled to open in Spring of 2021 inside a revitalized 3,500 square foot space at 2647 Main Street in the heart of Deep Ellum, this 110-seat restaurant, including a spacious 50-seat outdoor patio, welcomes guests with Postino’s warm, come-as-you-are culture and eclectic design.
Sharing a standalone building with Merit Coffee, Postino collaborated with progressive developers, Asana Partners, and designers XAN Creative to handcraft this new neighborhood hangout where ‘Drinking Wine At Lunch Is Not a Crime’.
Milkshake Concepts – the creative minds behind Citizen, Serious Pizza, Stirr and Vidorra – is continuing its innovation in the experiential hospitality space by preparing to open Harper’s, a new, one-of-a-kind restaurant in Deep Ellum.
Located at 2551 Elm St. in Dallas, Harper’s will be one of the anchor retail tenants alongside the historic Pittman hotel in The Epic, a new dynamic and engaging destination unique to Dallas. It’ll also be close to Komodo and Uber’s new office towers.
Adair’s Saloon opened in 1963 on Cedar Springs and operated by S.L. and Ann Adair. They were known for their cold beer and a half pound cheeseburger that brought in plenty of local college students who were encouraged to let their artistic side out by marking up the walls with graffiti.
