ADDISON – The Market Hall, a sprawling "grocery and specialty foods emporium" is slowly making its way to Dallas. The opening of the concept, planned for Addison’s Vitruvian Park area, was originally scheduled for Spring 2015. Now, Eater San Diego is reporting that restaurateur Tony Riviera will open the first Texas location of The Market Hall in 2016, though no specific opening date has been nailed down just yet.

FRISCO – Make way for more burgers in the suburbs, because Burger 21 is headed to Frisco. The Tampa, Florida-based burger chain will open its first Texas location at The Towers at Frisco Square as part of a four-state expansion that currently includes planned locations in Michigan, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and a second forthcoming Texas location in McAllen. Look forward to creatively topped beef, chicken, and seafood burgers, along with gourmet hot dogs and hand-spun shakes. Burger 21 will open its doors in Frisco on January 11. [RestaurantNews]

ARLINGTON – By 2018, Texas Rangers fans will have a lot more dining options near Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Rangers executive vice president Rob Matwick told the Dallas Morning News that the plans would allow more than 8 million guests each year to experience "world-class entertainment, restaurant[s], and hospitality."
