If it seems like there’s a recent trend of Dallas sports teams getting involved in the restaurant business, it’s because there probably is. First, the Dallas Cowboys opened Stadium Club at AT&T Stadium, and now, Dallas Stars owner Tom Gaglardi is bringing a well-known Canadian eatery to the Big D.

We’ve long known that Gagliardi was eyeing Dallas for the latest outpost of Moxie’s Grill & Bar, but a release indicates that the concept will debut next month. The restaurant is a popular spot for casual dining in Canada, and will bring “international-inspired dishes made with local ingredients” to the Crescent Hotel.

The menu, created by Moxie’s executive chef Brandon Thordarson will feature dishes like Korean fried cauliflower served with gochujang, tempura shrimp “sushi cones,” and Thai red curry. Certified sommelier Kim Spence is in charge of the cocktail menu, crafting libations like a fizzy pomegranate-beet soda that will be on offer during weekend brunch.

Perhaps not surprisingly, Moxie’s will also be a new spot to watch the Stars (and other Dallas teams) play. In the lounge, you’ll find twenty TVs perfect for game day, and of course, the restaurant is just a stone’s throw away from the American Airlines Center, where the Stars and Mavericks play.

Moxie’s is set to debut in November, and will be open for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
