JoJo Eating House & Bar, the restaurant we've been covering in a series of blog posts that detail the making of a restaurant, announced it will open on November 19.
The dining room includes a wraparound bar facing the open kitchen, which I'm sure is a comfortable place to sit, and communal and regular seating tables fill the rest of the dining room.
The menu reads like a bistro classic with pizza thrown in because people like pizza. There's charcuterie and ceviche and oysters on the half shell, roast chicken, steaks and a handful of pasta dishes. It's a bit like an East Dallas Boulevardier.
Dinner only for now... 5 p.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, 5 p.m.-10 p.m., Thursday-Saturday, closed Sunday.
