The Finch is now on deck for Milkshake Concepts, taking up residence in Mockingbird Station early next year. The 5,760 square-foot anchor restaurant is in the space previously occupied by Café Express.
The new restaurant will obviously not look at all the same after Milkshake Concepts gets done with it; expect a "warm, comfortable interior with expansive patio and valet," great for a laid-back brunch or intimate date.
“Our culinary expertise has grown and evolved over the last five years, and we want to showcase this at The Finch,” co-founder and CEO of Milkshake Concepts Imran Sheikh says. “Whilst it is labeled a ‘modern American restaurant and bar,’ our definition of what that encapsulates is wide-ranging.”
Milkshake Concepts has quite the Midas touch. Their restaurants and bars all manage to drift to the top of the social stratosphere. For a bit of scale, in July this year, according to the Texas Comptroller, Citizen pulled in $692,831 in total mixed beverage receipts, which is sixth in all of Dallas for that time period. Vidorra in Deep Ellum was the ninth with $656,656 in total receipts. Vidorra Addison came in 12th with $594,562. Stirr in Deep Ellum was 22nd at $447,967. Stirr Addison was 32nd with $355,530. The newest concept, Harper's, is already stacked with reservations.
Following the debut in Mockingbird Station, The Finch will join many of its sister spots at the new large multi-purpose development in Grand Prairie, Epic Central. Vidorra, Serious Eats (a la Serious Pizza), and a soon-to-be-announced breakfast and brunch spot will be there as well.
