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.
Central Market opens new North Dallas store: Central Market at the corner of Midway Road and Northwest Highway is now open. According to the release:
The store totals over 50,000 square feet on two levels and will have many new features for Central Market customers including: an eight-foot specialty mushroom table filled with delicacies not found in any other retail store; an exclusive selection of specially curated red and white burgundies from France as well as an extensive collection of Bordeaux from the Loire Valley; the largest selection of Texas coffee roasters–more than 100 varieties, plus limited edition micro lots and single origin beans as well as Central Market’s In-House Roasted Coffee; old fashioned New York style bagels—boiled and oven finished in our bakery; a modular combination Cooking School and Community Room to be used for cooking classes, special events and community gatherings – the room can be sized down for smaller groups or open to full capacity for larger groups; specialty olive oils and small batch vinegars; and 100 varieties of bronze die pasta.
Internet Cafe 2 is closed: The millennial pink coffee shop in Oak Cliff is closed, reports the Dallas Observer. R.I.P.
Tapas Castile is closed: The Spanish restaurant located at Trinity Groves is no more.
A statement from Phil Romano: “In spite of the positive reviews of the food and wine program at Tapas Castile, the restaurant has not performed well enough for us financially to continue with the concept.”
There you have it.
