The Omni Dallas Hotel in downtown Dallas has two new restaurants which embrace the two most popular post-pandemic cuisines, chicken and pizza.

According to a release, the chicken is coming soon: November 4. Pizza will come later in November, exact date to be determined. Both will be overseen by Executive Sous Chef Erik Carlson.

Let's get to it:

Hops & Hens serves chicken tenders and sandwiches made with a unique brine that includes hops and brewer spices. They'll also have 15+ local brews on tap.

The menu consists of Crispy Tenders with dip choices such as honey mustard, herb ranch, and red hot.

Hops & Hens will have the fun environment component with lawn games such as Jenga, Connect Four, and Washers.

Pegasus Pizza will be a Neapolitan-style pizza spot, named for the iconic Pegasus perched on the Omni Dallas' front lawn. Ingredients will include organic tomatoes and "craft" meats, with the pizzas hearth-baked at high temperatures.

They'll do 12-inch pizzas including a Margherita, a Carne, BBQ Brisket, veggie with artichokes, olives, red peppers, mushrooms, spinach, and truffle oil, Buffalo Chicken, and Herb Chicken with chicken and white sauce.
