Flower Mound’s River Walk Will Have Five New Eateries

The River Walk Social in Flower Mound, a new entertainment district managed by RW F&B, has plans to launch five new restaurants in the coming months, according to a press release. The new concepts include three bars, a dessert and coffee bar, and a pizza joint.

Underdogs Burgers & Brew is a sports bar with an indoor and outdoor play area for kids. The menu includes burgers made with Texas wagyu beef, sandwiches, salads, wings, and a kids’ menu. English Pub Pennywise will have European beer selections and craft cocktails with a menu of English offerings like fish and chips. Whiskey and Smoke, a bourbon bar, will offer cocktails and bourbon (including flights), and a menu with brisket, pulled pork, and more smoked meats.

Pie Hole Pizza will serve up brick-oven pies along with salads and a beer and wine menu. And for dessert: Sugar Fix, a gelato and mini doughnut bar that will also serve coffee.

The concepts don’t have a firm open date. They’ll replace Primo’s MX Kitchen, Scout, and Sfereco on the River Walk.

Haystack Burgers & Barley Opens Fifth Location in Preston Hollow

Locally owned Haystack Burgers & Barley is slated to open a location in Preston Hollow on Dec. 12, its fifth in Dallas Fort Worth.

Kevin and Jenny Galvan opened the first Haystack in Richardson Heights about 10 years ago, serving up burgers and sandwiches for lunch and dinner. They’ve since expanded to Frisco, Far North Dallas, and Lakewood.

The new location, parked at 11700 Preston Rd., will be open every day for lunch and dinner. The menu consists of Haystack classics, like the Haystack burger (topped with onions, cheese, applewood smoked bacon, barbeque sauce, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles), and the whopping Vanderslice (two quarter-pound patties with two slices of cheese, thousand island dressing, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and onions).

Sandwiches like the Rueben and the Dandy’s Grilled Cheese will also be available, along with starters like fried pickles, stuffed jalapenos, and fried mozzarella.

Haystack Burgers & Barley, 11700 Preston Rd. Ste. 732.

Deep Dish Returns to Addison

Taste of Chicago has reopened its original Addison location after a months-long renovation. The specialty is deep-dish style pizza—hefty and filled with toppings like the Chicago Classic, stuffed with pepperoni, mushroom, onions, and green peppers.

The pizza joint also has a McKinney location that serves up the same menu of deep-dish and tavern-style pizzas, pastas, and Italian beef sandwiches.

Taste of Chicago, 14833 Midway Rd., Addison; 216 W. Virginia St. Ste. 102, McKinney.

Palmieri Cafe Expands to Bishop Arts

A coffee shop that started at the Dallas Farmers Market is now opening a second location in the Bishop Arts District, according to the Oak Cliff Advocate and the Dallas Morning News. The Italian cafe has served gelato, coffee, and pastries that are made in-house since 2016. The new location is expected to open later this month, according to the News.
