Elbowed into the newly constructed Boardwalk at Granite Park, Hookline has offically made its Plano debut, and it’s decidedly different than its casual predecessor Hook Line & Sinker.
Del Sur Restaurant group, the minds behind the popular casual seafood chain, took what people loved about Hook Line & Sinker, and boiled it down into a smaller, but more potent establishment that seeks to please those looking for a more modern approach to seafood, without breaking the bank, or having to sit next to a wall covered in boat propellers and crab pots.
Instead, Hookline offers a creative and modern aesthetic. The small space, only a few hundred square feet, appears much larger than it really is thanks to floor-to-ceiling coastal green glass. Three large garage-style doors bring the outdoors inside, opening toward the patio to make the restaurant even roomier. Indoors, whitewashed beechwood booths and benches offer seating, along with the bright, poppy aluminum barstools that line the bar.
The kitchen is flanked in marble and concrete and stares from the back of the restaurant, complete with a large leg of cured ham serving as functional decor. The bar is nestled into the back corner of the restaurant, also mostly glass and marble, refracting light through a variety of spirits and liqueurs that stretch towards the ceiling.
Hookline is now open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., with the doors staying open until 11 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Before heading to Plano, take a virtual walk around the restaurant courtesy of Eater photographer Kathy Tran.
