— Uptown gains yet another red meat palace today: Dinner-only Ruth's Chris opens at the bottom of the new 1900 Cedar Springs building. Expect all the usual steakhouse suspects, including shrimp cocktail, wedge salad, Prime steaks served on 500-degree plates, and plenty of potato options. For the more budget-minded, the happy hour sounds pretty legit: It runs 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday through Friday with $8 food items such a burger and fried lobster (!), $8 wine and cocktails, and $4 beers.

— Latin food is coming to Lowest Greenville. A new concept called La Bodegas will replace Bohemian Cafe, the funky kolache spot that shuttered over the summer. Owner Iana Price tells CultureMap he's "putting a lot of money into [the space]," and intends to have a mezzanine, a full bar heavy on Spanish wines, and a covered patio with "a tropical, Spanish feel." No projected opening date just yet.

— Downtown Dallas is getting a 24-hour diner. It will be part of the mega-revamp of the old Statler Hilton on Commerce Street. The reimagined hotel (which will also include residences) will also have "a high-end restaurant, a two-level bar, ladies lounge, retail, office space and a rooftop pool overlooking the Dallas skyline." The project is set to debut in October 2016.

— Food delivery app Caviar has added several new restaurants to the mix: Among them are Remedy, gluten-free favorite Kozy Kitchen, Uncle Uber's, VH Oak Cliff, Pakpao Thai, and TJ's Seafood Market; the latter's menu includes a full-fledged caviar setup, for those times you want to Netflix and chill like a true baller.
