The city of Dallas approved leases for Herrera’s, Coal Vines, Little Katana Sushi, and Beer Garden on Lamar to develop in the space just outside the Dallas Omni Hotel, Dallas Morning News’ Karen Robinson-Jacobs reports this afternoon. According to DMN, the $27 million dollar project is being fueled by money that’s leftover from the initial construction of the city-owned hotel. To be clear, the Herrera’s moving into the space will be run by Gil Bonifaz, previously of the Mockingbird Station and Denton locations that recently closed. The restaurants are slated to open by the fall of 2015. Downtown is certainly hot.
