Kavala’s in Oak Cliff is Changing Gears: Kelly Hightower Heads to the Kitchen at Kindal’s


weirdKavala’s Mediterranean Grill on West Davis in the OC will be shutting down soon for a remodel. Currently owned by Kelly Hightower and his wife, a new incarnation of the space will reopen with Hightower as one of a group of investors. The new spot which will be more of a bar than a restaurant and Hightower will oversee the  menu for the unnamed bar/restaurant. That will free Hightower up to take on his new role as execuchef at Kindal’s, which will inhabit the Che nightclub (Northwest Highway at I-35) space which closed last week.

More deets on the drinks and interior: “The patio at Kindal’s with lush plants, fountains, and video collages, is enclosed and heated and can be used year round. Guests can relax and indulge in one of Kindal’s Ginger Martinis, Cotton Candy Martinis, or the house specialty drink, the NOLA Punch.  The Cognac/Champagne cart serves and pours libations for the discriminating palate.”

Weird to me. Very curious move. Developing.
