Swanky downtown hotel The Joule is preparing to welcome a new restaurant into the fold: CBD Provisions and Midnight Rambler's new Italian sibling, Americano, just announced an "early October" opening date.

The press release also offers more details on the interior, mentioning a "bold olive-green interior, marble-topped bar with curved bronze mirrors, and Donald Judd inspired minimalist furniture," plus an "all-season glass enclosed patio features bi-folding windows that in nice weather will open up onto the bustling sidewalk on Main St." Americano will be open for lunch and dinner and also offer takeout, which could make it a new pizza standby for downtown residents.

The menu from chef Matt Ford "includes a selection of house-made pastas that range from bucatini with chicken meatballs and Swiss chard, ricotta and butternut squash stuffed tortellini to hand-cut pappardelle with Bolognese," plus "Neapolitan-style pizzas," housemade charcuterie, and house-baked breads, desserts, and gelato from pastry chef Ruben Torano (who also provides the sweets for CBD Provisions and Weekend Coffee).

Italian food is having a major moment in Dallas right now: Chef Daniele Puleo has the Italian market and pizzeria CiboDivino at Sylvan Thirty, Phil Romano just opened Saint Rocco's at Trinity Groves, John Tesar is planning the pasta-focused Gravy 51° in Turtle Creek, and Nonna chef Julian Barsotti also has a "Roman tavern" concept in the works for Maple Avenue, though no new news has surfaced on the latter in several months.
