Sharen Wicoff joins a hot-hot trend of caterers-turned-restaurateurs (George, Local, Tucker, etc.). Before opening the cheerful Grateful Bread Cafe in South Dallas, she personal-chef’d for rich and famous folks she’d rather not name (but think of a catalog founder beginning with the letter H). Given a name such as Grateful Bread, you might expect granola and 12-grain rolls. But it’s a 3-S place: soup, salad, and sandwich, from ladies-who-lunch classics, such as tuna and chicken curry, to from-scratch soups, such as cream of asparagus and carrot ginger, to homey cobblers and tarts. Meanwhile, she’s doing a different kind of catering to the neighborhood, with a reading nook and community bulletin board. 2221 W. Ledbetter Ave. (Loop 12), Ste. 100. 214-339-5656. BYOB —T.G.
