Patrick Colombo to Open Italian Restaurant in Preston Royal

The former Popolos space will soon become a modern Tuscan farmhouse-style restaurant. Veteran Dallas restaurateur Patrick (Cru, Ferre, Steel, Victory Tavern) is the force behind the deal. The man in the kitchen will be chef Kevin Ascolese, a long-time friend and co-worker of Colombo’s. You remember Ascolese. He cooked at Salve, Mi Piaci, and Ferre in the West Village. The dynamic duo are shooting for an opening in late August. “It won’t be high end, “Colombo said. “We plan to fit right into the neighborhood.”

    When Ferré first opened in the West Village, they served delicious Italian style food. Actually, it was one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas at that time.
    I sure would like to see Patrick Colombo open another Italian style restaurant like Ferré. There is a huge hole in Dallas between Nonna and Lucia that need’s to be filled.
