The Revolving Doors of Dallas: February
Our monthly wrap-up of restaurant openings and closings around
Rathbun's Blue Plate Kitchen: casual, creative and affordable cuisine, located at 6130 Luther Lane, from the chef behind Abacus and Jasper's. Rathbun won over the media with a free, 30-item meal. His menu of Texas Gulf Blue Crab Gratin, "DP" Mopped Rotisserie Chicken and such appears as promising as his marketing skills.
Five Sixty: Wolfgang Puck's Dallas restuarant debut aimed for the stars and landed at Reunion Tower - 560 feet in the air. Finally, the icon of the Dallas skyline is worth the daunting elevator ride to the top
Paciugo Gelato: Frozen treat vendor's Victory Park store went stone cold February 28.
Chef's Room at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek: closed February 26 after losing its main chef. The rest of the restaurant remains open, of course.
Franki's Li'l Europe at Casa Linda Plaza--former Dallas Observer "Best Restaurant" runner-up--closed early last month.
On The Way?
Stop-Play-Rewind bar, Naga Thai and Olivella's Neo Pizza Napoletana scheduled to open at Victory Park this fall. We'll see.
Ziziki's: future Grapevine location, unconfirmed.
Roasters and Toasters, a New York Jewish deli, may replace vacated Ed's Deli.
