Looking for somewhere new to grab a bite, a cup of coffee or a waffle handed to you through a fancy downtown hotel waffle window? Here are four new spots to put on your radar:
The team from the Woolworth just opened this trendy new Henderson Avenue spot with "global influences" and "spirit-forward cocktails." Snack on poutine, smoked salmon pizza, crab nachos and soba on the front patio.
The Adolphus gets a new coffee shop this week.

Opening Wednesday, Otto's gives the renovated Adolphus Hotel another tool in its fancy food and drink arsenal: a Viennese-style cafe with Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters coffee, grab-and-go food and a waffle window that enables you to grab a traditional Belgian Liège waffle.
The AF TyKu Colada at Alice.
Alice is one of Dallas' newest kind-of-Asian restaurants/cocktail bars/makeshift dance clubs, and if you like tropical cocktails in an uber-trendy space, this Hall Street spot is likely up your alley.
Petra and the Beast
Pigtails at Petra and the Beast, with "Louisiana-style" rice balls and pickled mustard greens.
Our favorite new restaurant is in an old gas station in East Dallas. Forager/fermenter/meat-curing mastermind Misti Norris is back with this pop-up restaurant that serves lots of cured meats and fresh charcuterie and some noodle dishes. It has a handful of tables for customers to BYOB and try Norris' new culinary inventions. Keep in mind that Saturday nights are reservation- and tasting menu-only, but they're well worth the experience.
