The Bishop Arts favorite of the Instagram and TikTok set, Paradiso, announces the opening of a sister bar to the restaurant: Bar Eden. It slides into the space that previously hosted Botanical and sits off the patio of Paradiso for easy access. The general idea is that it’s a good spot to grab a cocktail before your meal at Paradiso.
While much of the menu is still under wraps and likely will be until the place opens on Saturday, August 6, a press release teases two items. First, a cocktail called the Fountain of Youth made with English gin, Meyer and eureka lemon, cane, fino sherry, a half bottle of brut champagne, and ube stardust. And for plates, there will be tempura beer battered zucchini blossoms with fennel and green goddess dressing. Sounds...dare we say, heavenly?
LimeHoney is now open and serving Tex-Mex in Richardson. It comes from operator Todd Conger with a menu developed by chef Joshua Boneé. It’s a sister restaurant to the recently opened 42 BBQ Smokehouse + Market and works fast casual style with a full bar. The menu, however, sounds a step up from fast casual. On it, find albondigas with lime crema, brisket stacked enchiladas made with smoked brisket from 42 BBQ, elote ribs, chicken skewers, Mexican shrimp cocktail, ceviche, tuna crudo, tacos made using cooked-to-order tortillas, and the Cannonball Margarita (combines a marg and frozen sangria).
Ready for Miami pizza? Mister O1 is opening its first Texas outpost in Dallas in Oak Lawn this fall. All ingredients will be sourced from local vendors or directly from Italy. One unique menu item to try is the starred pizzas. The Star Beckham is filled with ricotta cheese, mozzarella, bacon, onions, fresh tomatoes, ranch dressing, and basil. And the equally delicious sounding Star Luca is filled with ricotta cheese, spicy salami calabrese, mozzarella, Italian tomato sauce, and basil. All the pizza crusts are prepared and rested for 72 hours before serving.
According to a press release, founder and master pizza chef Renato Viola, who was raised in Southern Italy, developed the menu.
