Torchy’s, Nodding Donkey, and World of Beer Opening on SMU Blvd. This Summer

Bradford Pearson made me aware that three new restaurants (Torchy’s Tacos, Nodding Donkey, and World of Beer) have just signed leases at the new retail space called BLVD, at SMU Boulevard and Greenville Avenue.

“We are excited to add three such strong restaurants to those already in the area,” said Taylor Stone, Managing Director, Multifamily, for Prescott Realty Group. “Nodding Donkey, Torchy’s Tacos and World of Beer will liven up the pedestrian experience along SMU Boulevard and will draw people from the greater areas to the neighborhood to live and play.”

BLVD is supposed to have 417 residential units along with 9,100 sq. ft. of commercial space. God help the kids who move in there. How’re they going to get any studying done with all those beers and tacos to distract them?

    I just hope they have enough parking for those of us who live in the area and find that parking for Milo’s or Twisted Root or Barley House sucks right now…can’t imagine when three new restaurants open with only street parking available.

    If you live in the area, why can’t you walk?

    The modern Austin food invasion of Big D (and the Metroplex more broadly) continues unabated. First came the grocery store march up I-35, with Whole Foods and then Central Market laying a successful siege to the area. More recently there’s been Eddie V’s (although it is now Arizona-based), and soon to be Torchy’s Tacos near SMU and Hopdoddy Burger Bar in Preston Center.
