Any restauranteurs looking to move to the Dallas Arts District have a lot to live up to. The neighborhood is jam-packed with killer restaurants and food trucks, i.e. Proof + Pantry, Tei An, and Klyde Warren Park mainstay Coolhaus. Currently, the only restaurant resident of the HALL Arts complex is Stephan Pyles’ Flora Street Café, which was recently named a semifinalist for Best New Restaurant in the 2017 James Beard Awards. Tough competition, to say the least.
Announced via release, a new contemporary Asian eatery called Musumé will soon join Flora Street Cafe at the swanky Hall Arts complex. A project of Josh Babb, the mind behind Victory Park sushi stalwart Kenichi, the eatery will open its doors at 2330 Flora Street later this year. No word on the exact menu yet, but “Musumé” means “daughter” in Japanese, so at a minimum except some Japanese flavors.
Now home to delicious restaurants on wheels and award-winning chefs alike, the arts district seems to get more impressive — and walkable — every year. The Hall Arts complex has room (20,000 feet of it, to be exact) for even more restaurants to open, so keep your eyes peeled for even more new arrivals.
Musumé is set to open in November 2017.
