Bruno Davaillon, currently of Knox Bistro and formerly of the much-beloved Bullion, has a new restaurant opening early in 2024. He’s teaming up with Stephan Courseau, founder of Travis Street Hospitality, to open the group’s fourth restaurant. Le Bilboquet, Knox Bistro, and Georgie by Curtis Stone are already in the fold.
Le PasSage will be in the Terminal at Katy Trail, a new mixed-use building just off Fitzhugh, near Beverly’s and Clifton Club, and within walking distance to the trail, just like all of Travis Street Hospitality’s restaurants. The food will be French-Asian fusion — a press release notes this is Davaillon’s first foray into the cuisine. “French and Asian cuisines have some very dynamic similarities in their cooking styles, so we are excited to bring in a[n executive] chef that has extensive experience in the space,” Davaillon said in the release.
Doce Mesas will be the second Restaurant in Maple Terrace
Dose Mesas will open a third location in Dallas at Maple Terrace in the second quarter of 2024. It follows the announcement that Catch will open a Dallas outpost at the historic mixed-use building in Uptown.
It will be the first Dose Mesas location also to offer breakfast that a press release promises will include “[a] daily smoothie, fresh squeezed juices, small bites such as Mexican pastries and avocado toast and classic Tex-Mex breakfasts such as chilaquiles, huevos Mexicanos, a breakfast burrito and breakfast tacos.” Like its other locations, this one will offer California coastal-inspired Tex-Mex, and the space will include an expansive patio for more outdoor eating.
Trick Rider Steakhouse to open in Omni PGA Frisco Resort
Coming soon (in spring 2023), the Omni PGA Frisco Resort announces that Trick Rider will be its onsite restaurant. A press release describes it as a “steak and seafood concept paying homage to famed rodeo trick riders and Texas culture” that is “inspired by [Cowgirl Hall of Famer] Sydna Yokley Woodyard, a champion rodeo trick rider who was raised on a Texas ranch, a quarter horse breeder and founder of the American Quarter Horse Association.” The art throughout will pay homage to famous cowgirls, and women trick riders. And yes, you see a crystal horse sculpture in the rendering above. Jeffrey Beers International designed it, weighing 1,500 pounds — now that’s a trick.
The Omni found its executive chef in-house, bringing a 10+ year company veteran, Joshua Hasho, to run the restaurant. “We are focusing on creating an authentic Texas dining experience through a thoughtful selection of the best cuts of meat available including a grand wagyu beef tasting, an extensive raw bar selection, east coast oysters, select shellfish from Australia, Hawaii and other spots around the globe flown in fresh daily,” Hasho said in a press release.
