Hello, I Must Be Going...And Growing
Last month's Revolving Doors was all about the taco. This month it's mostly about expanding and starting over again. Oh, and closing, but lets not focus too much on that when we have so many new restaurants to look forward to this summer.
We mentioned in a previous Hash Over that Avila's is open again and will be celebrating their grand opening next month. Also, Inwood Tavern is under new ownership and recently celebrated their reopening and renovations with a party last week. Greenz Salad is closing their Addison Circle location and moving to the Beltline and Monfort area. Plano's New Flower Market bites the dust, Molto Formaggio is playing musical chairs with Crème de la Cookie, and a couple other spots are calling it quits.
The Londoner is adding on two new pubs up north in Allen and Frisco, while La Duni is adding a new restaurant and cupcake studio in Fairview. David Uygur finally named his new restaurant which he has christened Lucia. A new Irish ale house is taking over the old Tipperary Inn's space, and all your In-N-Out dreams are coming true in Garland.
City of Aters, I present to you the May edition of Revolving Doors after the jump.
