Dallas BBQ restaurant with Wagyu brisket will spin off location in Addison
Like a holiday gift to BBQ fans, a Dallas barbecue restaurant is expanding with a spinoff: Oak'd BBQ, which first debuted on Greenville Avenue in late 2020, is opening a location in Addison.
It'll open at 4525 Belt Line Rd., a space that was home for 20-plus years to Chamberlain Seafood, the seafood spot from chef Richard Chamberlain.
According to a release, it'll open in February 2023.
Oak'd was originally founded by a group whose investors included Allen Evans and radio personality Kellie Rasberry. The restaurant is now owned by Michael Lane, who is also the chef.
Lane is a native of Houston and graduate of the Culinary Institute of America whose previous experience includes Cafe Annie, Pappas Bros., and running his own consulting business.
They take what they call an elevated approach to barbecue, using high-end ingredients and making various things in house.
That includes Texas black angus, as well as Wagyu Brisket from Rosewood Ranch, which they pepper heavily and smoke over Texas post oak.
Their meat lineup includes turkey, sausage, pork spare ribs, and burnt ends.
They're big on sandwiches, such as:
- chopped/slice beef
- pulled pork, jalapeno-cheese sausage, bacon, & coleslaw
- turkey BLT
- brisket with candied bacon, chiles, onion rings, and Creole aioli
There are four burgers including a bacon-blue cheese and a turkey burger, and three salads including mixed green, Romaine, and kale.
Sides include red skin potato salad, BBQ beans, mac & cheese, braised greens, apple cider coleslaw, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and a jumbo baked potato.
They're also big on desserts and have an in-house bakery, with ice cream, biscuits, bread pudding, and apple pie.
The restaurant is a 7,000-square-foot space, with seating for 150. They'll have two outdoor entertainment patios, an indoor/outdoor bar, and an event room that can accommodate up to 50 people with its own private outdoor area.
The decor will feature rustic steel and brick finishings with a Texas flare. I know that says "flare" and not "flair" but that's what the release says. Maybe there are like fireworks on the patio or something?
