Another new restaurant is in the works for Addison's Village on the Parkway shopping at the Dallas North Tollway and Belt Line Road: California-based Yard House, which has 50-plus locations scattered throughout the U.S., is slated to open October 29. Described via press release as a "modern public house known for its extensive draft beer offering," it'll encompass a whopping 13,000 square feet with nearly 400 seats inside and out and feature 130 beers on tap. Two dozen of said beers will be from Texas breweries like Deep Ellum Brewing Company, Lakewood and Real Ale. Other defining features include "a continuous playlist of classic and contemporary rock" and "a fleet of flatscreen televisions tuned to sporting events" that are "visible from nearly every seat."
The menu sounds suspiciously Cheesecake Factory-like, with "more than 100 items [that] are prepared from scratch each day ... ranging from shareable snacks and appetizers to grilled burgers and fresh seafood." A glance at the staggeringly large menu on Yard House's website reveals everything from deviled eggs and truffle fries to za'atar roasted cauliflower, Korean pork belly tacos and sweet potato fries with maple-bacon dip, plus a variety of meatless "Gardein" dishes, nearly 20 different burgers (including a "surf and turf" version with lobster and bearnaise), steaks, and a "gluten sensitive" category. At least there will be plenty of beer to drink while you decide what to order? Yard House will be open daily for lunch, dinner, and late-night.
Austin-based Hopdoddy Burger Bar opened its third Dallas-area location in the Village on the Parkway at the end of September; Nick Badovinus's Neighborhood Services is also slated to open its third location there seemingly any day now.
