New neighborhood restaurant taking over former Luby's in East Dallas
Dallas restaurateur Jon Alexis continues his spree of restaurant openings with Birdie’s Eastside, opening in the famed former Luby's Cafeteria space in East Dallas.
According to a release, it'll open in early winter 2023. Winter is coming.
Luby's sadly folded in 2021, and there has been much interest in the fortunes of this particular Luby's at 6221 E Mockingbird Ln. Now we finally know: It'll be a large-scale bar and grill, seating 250 inside, centered around a cathedral-pitched dining room and an adjoining indoor/outdoor “resort-style” bar, plus a 7,000-square-foot patio.
The menu will feature bar & grill food with an emphasis on family favorites and healthy options: Shareable appetizers like wings, edamame hummus, and flatbreads, salads, sandwiches, burgers, wraps, pastas and entrees.
The drink program offers beer, wine and cocktails, including a menu of frozen drinks such as the sauvignon blanc slushie.
The adjoining tree-filled open patio offers shade structures, landscaping, stone-paved walkways, a fire pit, rotating patio games and wifi.
There'll be a turfed area for kids to play and an “adults only” lounge featuring local beer and rare whiskeys.
A private room seats 40, for events and large groups, with its own private decked patio.
It joins Alexis' Imperial Fizz Hospitality which also includes TJ’s Seafood, Malibu Poke, Escondido Tex Mex, and Ramble Room.
