Chicago steakhouse Maple & Ash to do quickie pop-up at downtown Dallas sibling
A steakhouse from Chicago is doing a pop-up in Dallas: Maple & Ash, which was at one point supposed to open in Dallas at the Maple Terrace Residences building currently in development at 3001 Maple Ave., will do a six-night pop-up at its sister restaurant the Monarch.
Both Maple & Ash and the Monarch are part of Maple Hospitality Group, owned by F&B veterans Jim Lasky and Michelin-star chef Danny Grant.
They pulled back on opening a location here - the space at Maple Terrace will instead be filled by Catch Dallas, a seafood restaurant from Catch Hospitality Group, owned by Tilman Fertitta, Mark Birnbaum, and Eugene Remm.
But Maple & Ash obviously still has a crush on Dallas, thus the six-night pop-up from Thursday, October 26-Tuesday, October 31, with a special Maple & Ash tasting menu executed by Monarch chef Eric Dreyer.
Maple & Ash, which has locations in Chicago and Scottsdale, boasts a menu and wine list crafted by Grant, who is also the chef behind Monarch.
The menu, dubbed "IDGAF," changes daily, but samples dishes might be
- Blacked Out Oysters
- Fire-Roasted Seafood Tower
- Agnolotti "Pillows of Love"
Plus a meat entrée, a fish entrée, vegetables, and potato side dishes.
It doesn't come cheap: Reservations are $290 per person (and can be made online). But people love to do a special splurge, especially knowing that it's a limited run.
