NORTH DALLAS – It’s a shame, but Spork Dallas has officially closed its doors. Chef Eric Justice, who first opened Spork in a renovated Sonic Drive-In less than a year ago, confirmed the closure late yesterday evening, but did suggest that the concept could possibly reopen in the future. Either way, you’re going to be deprived of those most excellent kimchi fries and adult milkshakes in the meantime, and that’s a real shame. [SideDish]

ARLINGTON – The fast casual wave that is sweeping the country has officially made its way to Arlington. Blaze Pizza, a concept where diners will assemble their own pies and then watch as they’re fired-to-order in 180 seconds (three minutes, for those bad at math) will open at 841 E. Lamar Boulevard in the coming weeks. Suburbanites with dietary restrictions will be happy to know that Blaze Pizza will offer gluten-free crust and vegan cheese. [EaterWire]

CARROLLTON – One of the best spots in Dallas-Fort Worth to find a sandwich will soon open a second location. Cuban Dulceria, famous for its ridiculously good sandwiches and most-excellent pastry, will open a new "Cuban fast kitchen" in Downtown Carrollton on January 29. With the addition of Cuban Dulceria, alongside Cane Rosso and a forthcoming Monkey King Noodle Co, the dining scene in Carrollton just got a whole lot brighter. [SideDish]
