Monica Greene to Open BEE in Arlington

Monica Greene opened her first location of BEE, a casual “enchiladaria” in Oak Cliff in late January. Today she says she’s signed a lease on a new space for another BEE. Downtown Arlington will be home to BEE which will be nestled in between a new Flying Fish another location of Twisted Root. The cozy threesome will be on W. Abram between S. Elm and S. East Street. BEE, an acronym for best enchiladas ever, is a build-your-own enchilada concept focused on fresh, organic ingredients.

Once she gets the new BEE in her bonnet, Monica is going to open a ” true Mexico City-style full-service restaurant”  in an unfinished space at the ILUME building not just down from Dish. She is building the 3,500 square-foot restaurant “from the ground up.” She has changed the name from Distrito but hasn’t come up with a replacement.

Hmm. Maybe we could help her with that.

    Don’t forget The Mellow Mushroom will also be opening soon in the same area.

  • What about Ciudad DF? That worked out pretty well the last time!

    I agree with Margie! Bring back Ciudad DF!

    Looks like downtown Arlington is finally getting some traffic! There is a nice salon down the street (Amazing Grace) and a few of the neighborhood bars (JR Bentley’s) have gotten facelifts…it’s about time they brought fresh businesses to that area.
