Chef Paul Singhapong is well known in Dallas for his time at Crescent Court Hotel’s Beau-Nash or perhaps more recently at Cru Wine Bar as opening executive chef.

JoJo Opens For Biz Nov 19

There has been a little bit of buzz surrounding the soon-to-open restaurant JoJo Eating House & Bar that is being constructed on Howell Street adjacent to the Quadrangle in Dallas. I haven’t seen the menu yet, but it has been described as “approachable Mediterranean menu that represents Spain, Morocco, France and Italy, yet anchored in classic French techniques”.

Chef/Owner Laurent Poupart will open JoJo next Monday, November 19th . By then we should have a proper First ook for you to see the food and new digs.

In a press release sent out today Poupart says that JoJo is a dream come true and that when he arrived in Dallas nearly four years ago he knew this was the city for him.        Continue reading

BBC Close To Opening And We Snagged A Menu

by Steven Doyle

Located next to the Quadrangle on Routh Street in Uptown Dallas, the BBC, or British Beverage Company, will swing its doors open wide to the public October 29, 2012. October will prove to be a busy month for restaurant openings, and we are eager to grab one of the first pints to pour from this pub.

Sporting 50 taps along with 100 bottles of beer, the BC should prove to be a welcome addition to the pub landscape in North Texas. There is also promise of a kicked up cocktail program and a selection of 45 wines and bubbles. Continue reading
