Just a week away, Savor Dallas, the four-day food-and-wine extravaganza is nearly upon us. It takes place March 14-17, at various locations around Dallas-Fort Worth: from the Wine Stroll at Perot Museum to tastings at the Warwick Melrose Hotel and Mansion on Turtle Creek, to the climactic Grand Tasting at Irving Convention Center.

This year, the fest expanded, with a preview event on Thursday at Trinity Groves, the new restaurant incubator from Phil Romano and friends.

Savor Dallas just posted the list of restaurants that will be participating on Thursday, and it provides an interesting preview of what's to come at Trinity Groves. Some of these have already opened, some are still in development, but some haven't been reported on at all.

To the list:

3015 at Trinity Groves. This is the party rental space from chef Sharon Van Meter.

Babb Bros BBQ & Blues. This barbecue joint is the first restaurant that moved into the complex.

Bridge Beignet Club. Sharon Van Meter's French beignet-slash-coffee shop, in planning phase for a year.

Casa Rubia. Previously unannounced tapas spot from Jonn Baudoin and Omar Flores, owner and chef at Driftwood in Oak Cliff.

Chino. Taste contestant (and occasional blogger) Uno Immanivong and partner Adrian Verdin merge Asian with Latin food.

Hofmann Hots. Hot dog joint from Trinity Groves founder Phil Romano, already open.

LUCK. Also known as Local Urban Craft Kitchen, this is an Americana restaurant with craft beer on tap. Just signed their lease.

Resto Gastro Bistro. From former Common Table chef DJ Quintanilla, this is an as-yet-unannounced international restaurant with craft beer on tap.

Social Brew. Not yet an official Trinity Groves tenant, so cross your fingers it really happens, but this will be a tea-kombucha bar from the Holy Kombucha guys.

Souk. Moroccan restaurant market from Yaser Khalaf, owner of Ketchup Burger Bar and Baboush; lease is signed.

Tracy's Cake Gallery. Cakery from pastry teacher Tracy Germaine, who runs a cake business out of her home.

Wines poured at the Savor Dallas event will come from Skinnygirl Wine Collection, Becker Vineyards, Bodegas y Viñedos Codorníu Raventós, Constellation Brands, Drink Ribera Drink Spain and Oak Cliff Cellars. Beer is from Stella Artois, water by Kroger, and music from Bulldog Blues Band. The party benefits Hunger Busters.
