Your weekly helping of Dallas food news.

There’s not always enough time in the day to skim a lengthy, re-worded press release that’s been stamped with “breaking” or “exclusive.” And some stories don’t warrant an entire page of prose. Each week we’ll gather the most important tidbits of Dallas food news and post them here, on SideDish. Because sometimes all you need is the scoop.

Café Victoria to open in Victory Park: Victory Park resident, Luciana Gómez, is opening Café Victoria in the 75-acre mixed-use development in downtown Dallas.“Living in Victory Park, I saw the need for great coffee firsthand. It became my dream to share the taste of quality coffee in a wonderful environment with my neighborhood,” said Gómez in an email. “Now, my dream is coming to life, and I am both personally and professionally invested in a community that I believe in.”

According to the release: “Victory Park recently opened Classic Pilates, a Pilates and Gyrotonic studio, and Buda Juice, which serves hand-squeezed organic juice on the go. Joanna Czech Salon will open in October 2015 and offer a full range of skincare and nail treatments, waxing and aesthetic services. In addition, BuzzBrews’ fifth Dallas location for late-night menu cravings is slated to open in early 2016, and a premier cinema, Cinépolis USA, will join Victory Park in 2017.”

Café Victoria is slated to open in January 2016.

Whisk Crêpes Café to Open at Sylvan | Thirty on October 6: The 20-seat, 645-square foot creperie is gearing up for business in the new Oak Cliff development.

18th & Vine BBQ to open on October 6: Last July we announced that Kansas City barbecue restaurant, 18th & Vine BBQ, was setting up shop in a 3,400-square-foot space at 4100 Maple Avenue. Menu highlights include pulled rib meat gnocchi with grilled scallions, sour cream, and pecorino; grouper with sunchokes, beets, and mushrooms; KC strip steak with barbecue mashed potatoes and rapini (broccoli rabe); and of course, brisket.

Americano to open at The Joule Hotel in October: According to the release, the casual restaurant restaurant “will feature a seasonally inspired menu by Chef Matt Ford,” and is “named for the classic Campari cocktail, Americano pays homage to Roman classic Caffe Greco and ‘the sweet life’ portrayed in the 1960 Fellini film La Dolce Vita. The bold olive-green interior, marble-topped bar with curved bronze mirrors, and Donald Judd inspired minimalist furniture create a playful, energetic atmosphere with cinematic feel. The bright and airy all-season glass enclosed patio features bi-folding windows that in nice weather will open up onto the bustling sidewalk on Main St.”

The entrance to Americano is located inside the lobby of The Joule Hotel at 1530 Main Street. Keep an eye on SideDish for a sneak peek inside.
