Hello, Torchy's. Goodbye Tre Amici.
Well, we wish we could say the month of June was a great one with some long-awaited restaurants finally making their debut, but as they were coming, others were going.
As we said hello to the Torchy's, we were forced to say goodbye to Cafe Madrid in the Bishop Arts. As the new Brownstone Restaurant & Lounge finally open its door and brought back a Dallas favorite, chef Casey Thompson, Tre Amici Prime Steak and Seafood were closing theirs. No worries, foodie friends, just check out our coming-soon section to see we still have a lot of to look forward to.
After the jump is the June wrap-up of the restaurants that were, are, and will be.
