Oak to Open in the Dallas Design District

Candleroom owner Tommy DeAlano and his partners Richard & Tiffanee Ellman are opening a new restaurant in the Design District in Dallas. DeAlano won’t spill too many of the beans other than the name is Oak, and the fact that he promises to announce a “top-tier, well-traveled and experienced chef” soon. Construction has started on the 80-ish seat restaurant with two outdoor patios and the opening is scheduled for “fall.”

    Anyone who bothered to walk by that space would have known this months ago by looking at the TABC notice on the window clearly stating OAK.

    This is great because The Moth food sucks.
