Dallas' Knox Street lands another tenant, this one a market-cafe: Foxtrot, a chain from Chicago with two locations in Dallas, will open its third location at 3130 Knox St.

According to a release, it'll open in late 2022.

The location at 3130 Knox St., once home to Mexican restaurant On The Border which was subsequently broken down into mini-spaces, was previously a Yeti store.

Foxtrot was founded in Chicago in 2013, with coffee, lunch, late-night food, beer, wine, gifts, and everyday essentials delivered in under an hour via its app and website. They landed in Dallas in 2019, first opening a location in Uptown at 2822 McKinney Ave., followed by a second location near SMU.

"We’re always drawn to neighborhoods that have a strong sense of community and celebrate local food, art, and culture," says Foxtrot's CEO and co-founder Mike LaVitola, completely skipping over the fact that these particular neighborhoods in Dallas which they are drawn to are also ritzy. I mean, South Dallas also has a strong sense of community and surely celebrates local food, art, and culture, and yet no Foxtrots.

This location will function as an all-day café, with a coffee bar, grab-and-go offerings, pantry staples, and sommelier selected wine available to enjoy in-store or to order for pickup and "30-minute delivery" via the Foxtrot App.

The store will also have a patio on Knox Street for guests to enjoy a coffee, glass of wine or quick meal.

Other recent openings announced for the area include a restaurant from Duro Hospitality (The Charles, Sister) which will open in the former Highland Park Pharmacy space, and Pizzana, a pizzeria from the founders of Sprinkles cupcakes, slated to open in April.
