A new restaurant dedicated to biscuits is coming to a new high-rise in Deep Ellum: The Biscuit Bar, a small local restaurant chain, will open a location at what is considered to be the gateway intersection into Deep Ellum, at the corner of Pacific and Gaston Avenues.
The restaurant is going into The Epic, the mixed-use project combining office, residential, and boutique hotel at 2550 Pacific Ave. A representative from the restaurant confirmed that the Deep Ellum location would be opening later in 2019.
Founded by husband-and-wife Jake and Janie Burkett, The Biscuit Bar is a fast-casual Southern concept that does biscuits, biscuit sandwiches, tater tots, and sweet potato tater tots. They specialize in biscuits with a wide range of toppings. There's also a full bar with beer and cocktails.
The Burketts call The Biscuit Bar "the perfect place for food lovers who crave biscuits as sandwiches, with toppings or as a dessert, morning, noon, or night."
Menu favorites include The Hoss, named after Janie's father, made with fried chicken, bacon, jack/cheddar, honey butter, and sausage gravy; and the BBar burger, which is a burger on a biscuit.
There's also a chicken biscuit, and the "FABB," which has fig, arugula, and bacon. "Nanner Puddin" has bananas, vanilla pudding, ‘Nilla wafers, and whipped cream.
The couple debuted the concept in 2018 when they opened a location in Plano at the The Boardwalk in Granite Park complex. They followed that up with their official Dallas debut when they opened a location near SMU in May 2019.
Restaurants with biscuit obsessions are not new to Dallas' inner urban core: A location of Flying Biscuit Cafe opened inside the Central Business District in 2018, inside the Central Business District, in the 1700 Pacific building; and biscuits remain a theme at Elm Street Cask & Kitchen, the restaurant that was formerly Grayson Social, located at the Hilton Garden Inn at 1525 Elm St.
The Epic will feature three buildings: The Epic office tower, the historic Pittman hotel, and The Hamilton, a residential high-rise.
