If you haven’t been to Mockingbird Station to dine in a while, it’s probably because the options at this shopping center aren’t exactly exciting. That could all soon change as this stalwart shopping destination undergoes a facelift, bringing new (and improved) eateries along the way.
Announced via its blog, Mockingbird Station is currently undergoing a major revamp that will bring Mediterranean cuisine and macarons to the shopping center with two brand new concepts slated to open later this year. The restaurants will join standbys like Trinity Hall Irish Pub, Urban Taco, and Reikyu Sushi Bar.
First up is the unfortunately-named Mezze Mediterranean Kuizine, which will bring “fresh, flavorful Mediterranean fare” to Mockingbird Station. No details have been released yet on what the concept will look like, but you can expect for it to land by Summer 2017. Also en route is Edith’s Patisserie, not to be confused with the concept of a similar name that is based in Singapore. The bakery will bring “classic French pastry techniques” to Mockingbird Station, and is also set to debut this summer.
Perhaps most importantly, though, Mockingbird Station is also getting a major logistical improvement — a pedestrian bridge across Mockingbird Lane. According to the post, the bridge will “allow pedestrian traffic to cross over Mockingbird Lane between the DART rail stop at Mockingbird Station and the south side of Mockingbird Lane,” hopefully making that intersection a little less terrifying for folks on foot.
