Downtown Dallas, so long considered to be a culinary desert after 5 p.m. Friday when all the office workers head home, is in the midst of a serious boom of new openings. Pegasus News just wrote of the impending arrival of Wing Bucket, which will open late summer to provide downtowners with chicken wings (obviously) until 4 a.m., including oddball flavors like mole and PB&J. (Perhaps more exciting than peanut butter wings is the fact that Wing Bucket "will sell take-away beer and wine until 2 a.m.")
Word surfaced last week via SideDish that a cupcake shop called Fluellen Cupcakes would be opening on Elm Street in mid-June; the sweets spot, which is brought to you by a co-owner of Dimples Cupcake Factory in Frisco, will also feature a coffee bar and will stay open until 9 and 10 p.m. on the weekdays and weekends, respectively.
This news comes just after Teresa Gubbins reported on the opening of Stupid Good Coffee, located in the sky bridge at the 1910 Pacific building. Fast-casual Freshii opened in the Adolphus Tower earlier this month with evening and weekend hours, and preciously pastel Hospitality Sweet debuted around the same time with breakfast, lunch, and a plethora of housemade baked goods.
The surge of new food and drink options, along with the relatively recent addition of urban oasis Klyde Warren Park, is beginning to make downtown look downright inhabitable.
