Addison has a new venue for liquid lunches: Table 13 is now soft-open at Beltline and Inwood roads in the spot that formerly housed Cajun chain Dodie's, from the duo that brought Dallas Rio Room (amongst other concepts).
A retro-sounding menu features old school dishes like beef Wellington, lobster fra diavolo, chicken cordon bleu and baked Alaska, plus "vintage drink offerings" such as the French 75, Zombie, Manhattan, and Brandy Alexander. ("Chef-prepared steaks" are also promised, although who exactly that chef is remains a mystery at this time.)
Despite being described as "a period restaurant unlike anything else in the Dallas area," the interior looks decidedly more modern than something out of Mad Men, with a slick white bar and exposed brick — but hey, there is a wall adorned with vintage movie star photos. The attempted retro vibe extends to the live entertainment, which will include "classic, showroom style entertainment reminiscent of 1960's Vegas," a baby grand piano and special events like "British Invasion nights."
Table 13 will be open for lunch, dinner and late-night service, with grand opening events slated to kick off May 8. Perhaps $3 afternoon martinis will be a lunchtime draw for the area's many suits?
