SOLey! Opens on Henderson Avenue

In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve noticed how happening Henderson Avenue is these days. New bars and restaurants keep opening almost weekly. Here’s another one: SOLey! No, I’m not just excited about this place and adding my own exclamation point, that’s what they’re calling themselves, so that’s what I’m typin. The concept “combines classical French technique with touches of traditional Mexican cuisine,” according to the release, which makes me a little nervous because I like usually like places that stick to one cuisine. But hey, don’t knock it til you try it.

I like the story behind SOLey! (wow, that name is really not rolling off my tongue, or my keyboard): Mexico native Norma Heredia travels to France to study at Paul Bocuse Culinary Institute, meets fellow Mexican culinary student Jose Vasconcelos on her first day, they fall in love speaking only French to each other and eating lots of fondue and drinking bottles of Cotes du Rhone (okay I made that up but they did fall in love), and six years later, voila! Or, sorpresa! They are married and opening this restaurant.

On to the food: Escargots with tomatillo puree, filet of beef with shrimp and chipolte potato gratin, and churros with three dipping sauces. You get the idea. Jump for the rest of the lineup. As far as I can tell there’s no website. The phone number is 214-485-1302. They’re open Tues-Sat for dinner.
