Revolver Taco Lounge will return to Fort Worth
Revolver Taco Lounge, the popular gourmet taqueria in Deep Ellum, will return to its roots as a part of an expansion that also includes a second location in Deep Ellum. The restaurant, which was founded in 2011 in Fort Worth, will return to Cowtown with an all-new location at Sundance Square, expected to open in June, according to the Dallas Observer.
Rojas originally left Fort Worth for a location in Deep Ellum in 2017. Since the start of the pandemic, Rojas has been running La Resistencia, a tasting menu restaurant-within-a-restaurant out of Revolver’s Deep Ellum location. He’s in the process of signing a second lease in Deep Ellum that will become the new home of Revolver, while the current spot will transform fully into La Resistencia. No word yet on when those changes might be complete.
New York deli Sadelle’s headed for Highland Park
Dallas’s bagel game is about to get a bit more interesting. Sadelle’s, a modern deli from the minds behind Carbone, is set to open later this summer at Highland Park Village. The deli, which was first founded in Soho in 2015, is known for dishes like cream cheese Danishes, latkes, and of course, some of the best bagels in New York City. Stephen Summers, managing director for Highland Park Village, told CultureMap that he wanted to make sure there was still a grab-and-go breakfast destination for the shopping center after the departure of Royal Blue Grocery, which is closing on June 27.
Sadelle’s sibling restaurant, Italian eatery Carbone, is still slated to open in Dallas’ Design District, but has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Stay tuned for a timeline on both openings.

It’ll be the third location for the restaurant, which opened in McKinney in 2015. The original second restaurant, located in Lakewood, closed in 2017.
