Sadelle’s Opens in Highland Park Village

A New York-based “brunch institution” is formally making its debut in Highland Park Village on March 16, reports Rachel Pinn on Eater Dallas.

Sadelle’s will have to live up to the bold self-proclaimed title of serving the “best bagels in America” alongside their award-winning brunch menu items. Should you stop into Sadelle’s, the star of the show might be the bagels, but trying the Major Food Group’s version of their “ideal breakfast taco” is also a necessity. The restaurant group did a good plenty of research, as told to SideDish last summer.

A marketplace, coffee bar, rotisserie chicken and the frozen drink program is in store for the future of Sadelle’s starting this week at 1 Highland Park Village.

Cruffins on the Move  

Don’t fret, La Casita Bakeshop is relocating, but it will still dwell in the very same shopping center in Richardson. La Casita Bakeshop, which handles many whole sale orders in addition to its own bakery offerings, is undergoing a transformation in order to move into a larger venue. Read: more cruffins for all! Baker-owner Maricsa Trejo is a James Beard Award semifinalist for Best Baker 2022, though she didn’t make the final cut. (Yay, Maricsa!)

The rejuvenation process is a challenging one, so if you want to help La Casita Bakeshop come back better than ever, go cast your vote for their chance to win up to $30,000 and grow their new space.

Fiatto Opens in West Village  

Starting March 11, the new American-Italian restaurant Fiatto will be serving up a menu almost fully curated from scratch. You read that right, menu items such as breads, pastas, mozzarella, burrata, plus all sauces and stocks are made in house. 

All of the Fiatto anticipation is centered around chef and executive partner, Kylil Henson. In addition to the dishes made from Henson’s heart, you can also expect decadent entrees, from agnolotti stuffed with butternut squash, brussels sprouts, hazelnuts, brown butter and Pecorino Romano to 24K Risotto (limoncello lobster, arborio rice, saffron and gold puffs).

Fried Jesus Has Risen a Texican Restaurant  

If you have been paying attention to our deep dive reviews on Deep Fried Dynasty, then hearing the name Abel Gonzalez Jr., informally known as Fried Jesus, is a familiar name.  

Gonzalez is continuing his legacy beyond fair food into the ‘Texican’ realm with the launch of his new concept AG Texican. This new concept features Tex-Mex dishes accompanied by smoked meats. Find it at 7101 Harry Hines Boulevard near Love Field.

There is a wide variety when it comes to the menu such as quesadillas with choice of brisket, pork, steak, chicken, grilled veggies, or cheese; gorditas and flautas; tortas and tamales with choice of smoked pork or smoked brisket; and sides such as cilantro rice, bacon-beer beans, and jalapeño-potato salad. 

Italian Food in the Arts District

On March 10, a new restaurant debut in the Arts District in the former home of Flora Street Cafe: La Stella Cucina Verace. Word is that La Stella is luxe place to dine before the ballet or opera. From the breathtaking 5,000 square foot venue to their renowned chef, Luigi Iannuario, whose menu brims with central Italian stunners—carciofi alla Romana, agnolotti pizzicati, cotoletta di vitello—La Stella promises to be a special occasion restaurant. Cocktails, wine, desserts? You bet.
