January proved to be a busy month in the Dallas food scene. The highly anticipated Sundown at Granada opened its doors, along with a handful of other eateries.
Read on for the full opening and closing slate, and be sure to share tips about restaurant openings or closings in the comments section below or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Stand: Recently opened on McKinney Ave., this American-style eatery boasts some pretty gluttonous (in the best way possible) options. Take for instance their Mac Daddy Dog, a Jumbo Nathan's dog wrapped in bacon, lightly fried with mac n' cheese, topped with chili, cheese and two Tearjerker onion rings all served on a hoagie bun.
Lumi, the empanada shop in Uptown, also shut its doors.
Coming Soon: The Commissary, Burger Bus, Spoon Bar & Kitchen: John Tesar has a trifecta of plans for 2012.
Mason Bar: The Uptown restaurant and bar was supposed to open last month, but has yet to open its doors to the public.
Sissy's Southern Kitchen & Bar: Lisa Garza's Uptown soul-food restaurant, Sissy's Southern Kitchen & Bar, is scheduled to open this month.
