There's a restaurant now open in a redeveloped downtown Dallas high-rise that's giving downtown residents what they say they want: long hours. It's an American bistro called Sloane's Corner, and it's at 2001 Ross Ave., #125, inside the newly redeveloped Trammell Crow Center near Nasher Sculpture Center.

Opening day is November 11, and it's serving breakfast, lunch, happy hour, and — most importantly for the indignant downtown set — dinner, too. They're open until 10 pm Monday-Saturday (and closed on Sunday).

Some other restaurants that have tried to do late hours such as The Commissary have cut back due to lack of business.

Sloane's is from NL Group, the restaurant company from Tim McEneny, who also owns Jalisco Norte and Dish. He says in a statement that he's excited to land in the newly redeveloped Trammell Crow Center. So excited that he's embroiled a family member.

"Sloane's Corner is named after my third daughter who is 7 years old," McEneny says, who shares that his daughter's name was inspired by Sloane Square in central London, the intersection of retail, residential, arts, and economic districts which undertook an initiative in 2005 to make the area more walkable.

"With the completion of a $350 million multi-year redevelopment, Trammell Crow Center’s goal was to become more pedestrian friendly," McEneny says. "Trammell Crow Center has added retail, apartment living, and a 250-room upscale boutique hotel to Downtown Dallas. Sloane's Corner wants to be at the heart of that community."

So it's related, see.

Executive chef is Ji Kang, previously of Dish and Samar in Dallas; he's also worked at Michelin-starred restaurants Blanca, Atera, and Betony in New York, and with celebu-chef Tom Colicchio and Scott Conant working to manage hospitality and corporate projects.

Breakfast options include a baguette with toppings like Jamón ibérico and tomato basil, or cast iron French toast with mascarpone, huckleberry, and maple syrup.

Lunch options include hot sandwiches like a shaved porchetta Cubano on ciabatta with pickled onions, ham, and provolone with herb fries; and a Prime burger on a brioche bun with smoked gouda, caramelized onions, and pickled mustard seeds.

Dinner options include saffron capellini with fire roasted tomato sugo, whipped ricotta and basil; sea scallops; and Atlantic salmon.

There's a bakery with croissants, kolaches, and cookies; and a grab-and-go cooler with quick options like sandwiches, salads and soups.

Sloane's Corner also has a coffee bar and CBD infused water.

Decor has a mid-century theme with walnut wood walls. There's also an expansive outdoor patio with plenty of seating near water features and fire pits, plus free WiFi.
