A new restaurant serving seafood and Cajun-inspired cuisine is coming to Dallas in fall 2019. The restaurant: Tricky Fish. The address: Preston Hollow Village at Walnut Hill and Central Expressway.

Tricky Fish is the sibling of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, the Addison-based restaurant chain that specializes in Cajun food.

They created the Tricky Fish concept in 2017 with a stronger emphasis on seafood, opening the first location in the CityLine development in Richardson. A second Tricky Fish opened in Fort Worth's Waterside in August 2018.

Razzoo's CEO Jeff Powell says in a statement that Dallas has been on their to-do list.

"We've wanted to find an additional Dallas outpost for Tricky Fish, and Preston Hollow Village is the perfect partner for our continued growth," Powell says. Sounds delicious.

The menu includes gumbo, oysters, oyster shooters, calamari, peel & eat shrimp, sweet Thai wings, blue cheese potato chips, and fried green tomatoes.

Entrees include fish & chips, shrimp linguine, crawfish etouffee, and fried platters starring choice of shrimp, catfish, crawfish, or oysters. Macaroni & cheese comes with choice of cheddar, chicken, or shrimp.

There are sandwiches including a cheeseburger; a trendy Nashville hot chicken; and po'boys in six options: fried shrimp, fried catfish, blackened catfish, blackened chicken, roast beef, or fried oyster with bacon.

Fancy seafood dishes include grilled or blackened salmon, grilled redfish with wilted spinach salad, and BBQ shrimp with white rice.

A daily happy hour runs from 5 pm to close. The bar has cocktails, draft beers, and whiskies. Weekend brunch features benedicts, shrimp & oyster grits, fried green tomatoes, and breakfast hash & eggs.

The actual location is at 7825 Firefall Way, which is the small roadway right off the frontage road that's actually parallel to Walnut Hill. They're going into a 4,000-square-foot new build space with indoor seating for 120, and a large patio with additional seating for 40.
