One Arts Plaza is my newest favorite place in Dallas. If I had a million dollars, I would buy me a condo. Why? Because it’s the happening spot in Dallas. Nice Michelle in the marketing department just gave me some serious poop. Ready?
Jorge’s, from that keep-it-weird city down south, will open by July 31st. Eaten at Jorge’s in Austin? Then you already know about Jorge, the wacky dude in the fancy clothes. He’ll be in Big D from time to time, but his daughter, another Michelle, will handle the space here.
Also set to open around the same time is Fedora Restaurant & Lounge, an upscale Italian restaurant (oh, no! ) brought to you by Gina Campisi of, yes, you’re as always, way ahead of me, Campisi’s.
And the best for last: Teiichi Sakurai, who sold his popular spots Tei Tei and Teppo/Moosh Bar in the spring, will open Tei An, a sushi bar and soba noodle house around the first of August.
Other One Arts news: Mark your calendars for October 16th. They’re going to close down the surrounding streets for a major block party. And all the little groups responsible for producing the Arts District will align as one healthy organization and throw a ginormous party. (Other events here.)
Oh, I almost forgot the poop: According to my inside source, there are loads of dog lovers living in One Arts, including one named Prada and another called Rolex. (Way to go T-3, call me dude!) Is this a great city or what? Back to you, Wick.
