The Galleria is getting an urban restaurant and wine bar. When? Sometime in early December when Townhouse Kitchen + Bar opens. I’m not sure if the verbal pronunciation is Townhouse Kitchen PLUS Bar or Townhouse Kitchen AND Bar, but no matter how you say it, The Galleria is getting a kitchen and a bar.
When plans for TK+B were announced in June, it was described as a “fun destination for diners across North Texas” and “sophisticated yet relaxed.” Today we learn “Executive Chef Paul Niekrasz will show us his innate talent for preparing bold flavors and market-fresh ingredients with Townhouse’s uniquely designed menu offering a large selection of small plates, sandwiches, salads, and entrees to suit any taste.” Niekrasz has been with TK+B’s parent company Restaurants-America for five years. The food will include sliders, flatbread, and lemon rosemary chicken. Drinks are hand-crafted. The rest of the details are below.
Executive Chef Paul Niekrasz will show us his innate talent for preparing bold flavors and market-fresh ingredients with Townhouse’s uniquely designed menu offering a large selection of small plates, sandwiches, salads and entrees to suit any taste. Niekrasz has worked with Restaurants America for more than five years and was most recently the Executive Chef of Grillroom and One North Kitchen in Chicago, Illinois.
Menu stand-outs include appetizers like the lobster roll ‘sliders’ (Hawaiin style rolls, Old Bay remoulade, crispy capers, chives and apple-celery salad) and flatbread ortolano with fontina, roasted garlic, arugula, grape tomatoes and balsamic. Specialty entrees include lemon rosemary chicken with jalapeño hash browns and broccolini, roasted pork loin (with hazelnuts, brussel sprouts and bacon, polenta and salsa verde) and Cajun rubbed New York strip (with fried onion strings, Swiss chard and tomatoes).
For those meeting colleagues or friends for after-work drinks, Townhouse will feature a selection of hand-crafted cocktails, draft beers and wines by the glass or bottle. Townhouse will also have a wonderful happy hour Monday through Friday.
