Restaurant comings and goings top this week’s 5 most popular stories
Editor’s note: Another week has come and gone, and there’s a lot we all probably missed. But we’re looking out for you, kid. Here are the most popular stories from this past week:
1. West Coast’s trendiest ice cream sandwich comes to Dallas in time for summer. Ice cream looms as one of Dallas’ biggest food trends for 2016, and there’s a new twist arriving from the West Coast: the milky bun. Bringing this fine delicacy to town is Milk & Cream, a cool shop opening in June on Greenville Avenue.
2. Greenville Avenue pizzeria hits hip East Dallas ’hood for next location. The 10-year-old Greenville Avenue Pizza Company will open a second branch in East Dallas, at Garland and Peavy roads, an area that has been on the upswing ever since Good 2 Go Taco opened there in 2011. The opening is slated for fall 2016.
3. New Dallas townhome caters to young professionals who want it all. Take a drive down Fitzhugh Avenue in Dallas’ Knox-Henderson neighborhood, and you’re bound to notice new townhome development The Ivy. And if you want to imagine what life might be like living there, then check out the furnished 4925 Flitwick Ct.
4. Dallas’ Greenville Avenue has one less breakfast option with this closure. The bottomless coffee on Greenville Avenue has dried up; Cafe Brazil closed earlier this week. That location opened in 2007, and, like all of its Cafe Brazil siblings, it was big on breakfast and offered late-night dining hours, originally 24 hours on the weekend.
5. Dallas-Fort Worth food fanatics get their fill at best Tastemaker Awards yet. Hundreds of hungry fans packed the Hall of State in Fair Park for the 2016 CultureMap Tastemaker Awards, the grand finale of our annual program that honors the top talent in the Dallas-Fort Worth restaurant and bar communities.
