In early February, 30-year-old California eatery Daphne’s Mediterranean will debut two outposts in DFW.
The fast-casual Mediterranean chain is set to take over Noon Mediterranean’s two existing outposts at 7949 Walnut Hill Lane in Dallas and 8449 North Beltline Road in Irving after acquiring the national Mediterranean chain late last year. It’s part of a national expansion for Daphne’s, which will also assume Noon’s locations in Austin, Houston, Boston, and Philly. Daphne’s parent company Elite Restaurant Group debuted its hamburger-focused eatery Slater’s 50/50 in DFW in 2017.
The Mediterranean change-over won’t be too much of a shakeup for Noon fans. Daphne will continue to serve gyro and falafel along with customizable bowls that characterized Noon’s menu. Look for additions of mezze platters and fries loaded with gyro meat, fiery feta sauce, pickled onions, and harissa.
The Walnut Hill location officially opens February 8, followed by Irving on February 15.
