Wild Salsa

FAIRVIEW – Mexico City-style cuisine is headed to the suburbs. Announced via press release yesterday, Wild Salsa's first Collin County location for dinner in Fairview is ready to open. The original Wild Salsa opened its doors in Downtown in 2011 to much fanfare, including D Magazine’s Best New Restaurant award. The opening of the new flagship location at The Village at Fairview brings housemade flour tortillas, churros with margarita caramel, and a large patio with hammock chairs, a cornhole toss, and foosball table. Wild Salsa opens in Fairview today for dinner. [EaterWire]

RICHARDSON – A familiar East Dallas favorite is bringing high tea with a Thai twist to the 'burbs. The recently launched tea service at Bangkok on Belt Line, the sister restaurant to the much-beloved Bangkok city is a Thai-inspired take on British tea, with curry-stuffed dumplings and lotus tea instead of crustless sandwiches and Earl Grey. Haute Sweets patisserie will provide desserts, including Thai tea macarons and passion fruit chocolate tartlette. Tea service is open at Bangkok on Belt Line on Saturdays at 2 p.m., and reservations for the twenty available seats are required in advance. [EaterWire]

LOWER GREENVILLE – Ever wanted to learn more about cheese or wine? How about both? At The Grape this Thursday, owner and sommelier Courtney Luscher will co-host a Cheese & Wine Chat at The Grape with cheesemonger and "certified cheese professional" Ali Morgan. The chat will walk you through four cheeses and four wines for the bargain-basement price of just $28. For an even better deal and more deliciousness, stick around at The Grape after class for 20% off dinner. [EaterWire]
