After six years of serving killer Afghan cuisine on Greenville Avenue, Dallas dining scene stalwart Nora is headed to a new location in the Bishop Arts District.

Nora co-owner Rosalind Lynam tells Eater that the restaurant will be open on Greenville through the end of the year before making a move to a space on 205 North Bishop Avenue. “Although we have loved being on Greenville for the past 6 years, we are ready for a change and interested in having a space that is a lot smaller than our current one,” Lynam says. “We also feel like Bishop Arts is a really exciting, eclectic area that is a good fit for Nora.”

Lynam and her husband Matt Pikar opened Nora in 2012 as a successor to beloved North Dallas restaurant Afghan Grill, which also operated for six years before closing in 2014. At the new location of Nora, diners can look forward to the same menu of kebabs and stews, plus those perfect little mantu, or Afghan beef dumplings.

Nora is set to hit the Bishop Arts District sometime in early 2019. The Greenville Avenue outpost will shutter at the end of 2018. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
