Wondering where beloved restaurateur Monica Greene went since shuttering her Dallas restaurants BEE Enchiladeria and Monica's Nueva Cocina roughly a year and a half ago? Wonder no longer — according to Teresa Gubbins, Greene is on the brink of opening a new restaurant, this time in Fort Worth. Greene's new project is actually the revival of an old project, says Gubbins — "a short-lived restaurant she opened in downtown Dallas back in 2003 called Pegaso Diner."
Gubbins describes the long-defunct Pegaso as a "fast-casual Mexican spot that was like a taqueria spin-off of Greene's '90s Oak Lawn restaurant Ciudad," with a menu that featured "burritos, Mexican-style tacos, ropa vieja salad, fruit paletas, and Mexican sandwiches." It'll remain to be seen how closely the new Pegaso sticks (or doesn't) to the original concept, but Fort Worth won't have to wait too long to find out: Gubbins quotes the contractor as estimating an opening date of "mid- to late July."
