On the topic of biscuits, more is good.

The Boardwalk in Granite Park gets four more restaurants, two of which are known locally, and two of which are entirely new concepts. One of them does biscuits. All four will open in spring or summer 2018.

Known entities first:

Pearl Cup Coffee serving espresso drinks, coffee, snacks, pastries, plus wine and bites in the afternoons through the evening.

Edith's French Bistro. Second location of a restaurant that opened at Mockingbird Station in 2017. It will offer French baked goods like viennoiseries (light and fluffy pastries with a hint of sweetness) and patisseries as well as a full breakfast, lunch and dinner featuring French dishes including crepes, duck confit tartine, garden nicoise salad, roasted lamb, and short rib poutine.


B. Frank & Relish, a new concept to debut at The Boardwalk, has an eclectic menu in a rustic environment offering a wide range of bar food and salads, using quality ingredients, some locally sourced, featuring a wood fire grill for the whole family to enjoy. Menu offerings include grilled artichokes, gourmet salads, B. Famous Wings with chipotle sauce and seared hanger steak with soy ginger glaze. The food is paired with local and regional craft beer, cocktails and uniquely sourced wines tapped right off the barrel.

The Biscuit Bar, a new Southern home-style concept, will offer a fast-casual yet high-quality take on scratch biscuits with a wide range of toppings. Menu items include Biscuit & Egg, Buffalo Blue Chicken Biscuit, Charcuterie Biscuit and the Monte Cristo. The restaurant also serves salads with biscuit croutons, biscuit desserts, and a bar menu with cocktails.

Granite managing director Will Hendrickson says in a release that they're adding more restaurants than they'd originally planned.

"Initially we planned to offer six restaurants but we split two spaces to have more diversity and culinary creativity," he says. "From morning to night, people will be able to enjoy their breakfast, lunch and dinner or unwind for weekend brunch or happy hour at this cool and unique waterfront."

The Boardwalk is a 30,000 square foot waterfront escape located in Granite Park, a 90-acre, mixed-use campus with six Class A office buildings at the intersection of the Sam Rayburn Tollway (121) and the Dallas North Tollway. The Boardwalk offers a restaurant row, patios, lounge areas, a children’s play area, fire pits and a waterfront for Granite customers and visitors. The Boardwalk overlooks the amenity-rich 299-room Hilton Granite Park Hotel, a full-service convention hotel with a 30,000 square foot conference center, two ballrooms, an executive lounge, a 24-hour fitness center, a resort-style outdoor pool, and the restaurant Carso Mediterranean Grill – referred by D Magazine as “one of Plano’s most delicious restaurants.

The restaurants join the following eateries already calling The Boardwalk in Granite Park their home.

  • Chips Old Fashioned Hamburgers, the legendary Dallas favorite.
  • HookLine, offering Cajun and Southern Comfort inspired dishes the chef calls Gulf Coast Low Country.
  • Union Bear, formerly in Dallas’ West Village, is Plano’s first independent brewpub and restaurant.

Granite is in lease negotiations with one additional eatery for the remaining space to offer a collection of eight restaurants by the end of 2018.
