CraftWorks Kitchen to open in Plano:
This is not a German band that formed in 1970 and popularized electronic music. I know you were probably super confused as to what they’re doing in Plano, Texas. I mean, they did play the Bomb Factory three years ago. But I’m fairly certain they’re in Sweden this month, and not a city 20 miles north of Dallas. Also, they spell their name with a K and not a C. This joke is not landing. I’m officially embarrassed.
Some straight-up facts about CraftWorks Kitchen:
- The restaurant space is 3,100 square feet
- The fare is modern American
- There’s lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch
- The restaurant will open at Plano’s LakeSide Market (5809 Preston Rd. Ste. 578) in October
