Eataly sets its sights on DFW
In news that’s probably very exciting for Italian food enthusiasts in DFW, massive Italian market Eataly is reportedly coming to Dallas. According to D Magazine, a limited liability corporation called “Eataly Dallas” was registered in Delaware back in April, and it’s likely that the forthcoming outpost will land at NorthPark Mall, which is currently undergoing a retail revamp. NorthPark has not yet confirmed the new outpost, which means that there aren’t any details on when Eataly will open its doors in Dallas.
Velvet Taco arrives in Plano
The latest outpost of popular taco joint Velvet Taco is set to arrive at Legacy Hall on May 13. It’s the chain’s first location in Plano, joining nine other restaurants in Georgia, Illinois, and Texas. The stall at Legacy Hall will be a bit more pared down than Velvet Taco’s other outposts, only serving five different tacos (think chicken tikka masala and roasted brisket) and sides like red curry coconut queso.
Dog Haus heads to Arlington
As Eater reported back in December, California-based hot dog chain Dog Haus is currently planning an outpost in Arlington. According to a press release, the chain has officially broken ground on the location at 4000 Bagpiper Way in the Arlington Highlands development. A third outpost is expected to arrive in Lake Highlands in late 2019.
