Film producer and oil magnate Tim Headington is already a major player in Dallas’ dining scene thanks to eateries like Americano and CBD Provisions, and the newly-opened Mirador. Last year it was reported that Headington was planning a major expansion into the Design District, and now we’ve got more details on when that will happen.
Announced via release, Headington Companies will open “modern American gastropub” Wheelhouse later this month. The casual lunch & dinner concept will be housed in a 10,000 square foot complex that will also be home to Headington’s forthcoming Italian eatery Sassetta and quick-service spot Go Go.
The menu at Wheelhouse, created by former Oak exec Brian Zenner and ex-CBD Provisions chef Michael Sindoni, can be described pretty simply as fancified bar fare. Housemade sausages, freshly-baked pretzels, beef jerky, and raw oysters make appearances on a menu of small plates, in addition to heartier options like fish and chips and a burger. A cocktail menu will serve up simple “three to four ingredient” craft cocktails, which will be served both on tap and in giant pitchers in addition to a regular old glass.
Wheelhouse is set to open its doors on Saturday, March 25. Sassetta will follow later in the spring, likely April.
