Jack Mac's Swill & Grill with Jack's Pie on the Side Takes Over Tiramisu This Summer

Gubbins got the scoop on a new restaurant going in Tiramisu at 19009 Preston Road (between Frankford Road and the PGBT). Jack MacDonald will transform the spot to Jack Mac's Swill & Grill. McDonald previously owned the Press Box in downtown Dallas and was also involved with Iron Cactus, Romano's Macaroni Grill and Sam's Cafes.

There's a dual layout to the place. Half will serve as a to-go pizza spot, and the other will be a pub with more than 12 beers on tap and upscale bar food.

MacDonald has already taken over the real estate and is serving dinner as Tiramisu.

"I'm looking at an early to mid-July opening as Jack Mac's Swill & Grill and Jack's Pie on the Side," wrote McDonald in an email. "In early August we will have a grand open event."
