Get ready for Shug’s Bagels
New York native Justin Shugrue will attempt to bring legit, New York style bagels with a new shop called Shug’s Bagels. According to GuideLive, the shop will take over the space formerly occupied by Chinese restaurant Lovers Egg Roll at 3020 Mockingbird Lane sometime later this year or in early 2020. Expect kettle-boiled bagels and breakfast sandwiches when Shug’s makes its debut.
A new destination for Indian sweets and curries heads to Richardson
Bikaner Sweets, a new Indian restaurant, is set to make its debut in at 139 North Plano Road. According to the restaurant’s Facebook page, diners can expect a bounty of North Indian-style sweets and vegetable-based curries, with more than “80 different items” on the menu. Signage for the building went up earlier this week, and its owners anticipate opening the doors in “three weeks or less.”
Chipotle tests white queso in Dallas
Chipotle is using Dallas as a test market for its cheesiest new offering. Per CNBC, the massive burrito chain is currently testing a new queso blanco side at more than 50 of its restaurants in Dallas, Detroit, and San Diego. Made with Monterey Jack cheese, cheddar, and chiles, the new queso can’t be any worse than Chipotle’s original (yellow) queso, which did not impress Eater NY critic Robert Sietsema (or anyone else) when it debuted in 2017.
