The Scoop: Christmas Traditions, Sprouts Market to Open and More Dallas Food News

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.

Sprouts Farmers Market Rowlett to open: The first Sprouts Market in Rowlett is slated to open on Wednesday, December 30. This will be the 19th Sprouts Market in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The 30,000-square-foot store is located at 3001 Lakeview Parkway.

Casa Dolores Tex-Mex Restaurant is closed: In August, we broke the news that a new Tex-Mex restaurant from the Mia’s family had opened at at 4906 Maple Avenue. Unfortunately, flavorful salsa, tender brisket tacos, and speedy service wasn’t enough to keep the business afloat. R.I.P. Casa Dolores.

French Christmas Eve tradition with Réveillon De Noël at Lavendou Bistro Provençal: The Christmas Eve event features Lavendou Bistro Provençal holiday traditions. According to the release: “Based on the idea of ‘staying awake’ until midnight on Christmas Eve for religious services and gift giving, Réveillon is a classic feast of French culinary delights and favorites on the Lavendou menu that can be ordered à la carte. Once again this year, Lavendou Chef and owner Pascal Cayet will be featuring signature desserts such as the famous Lavendou Grand Marnier and Chocolate Soufflés served with marvelous cream and the popular, famously craved Cranberry Walnut Tart, a holiday tradition in North Texas.”
