SADELLE'S

sadelle's dallas

Neighborhood: Highland Park Village

Opened: March 16th, 2022

About: Sadelle’s opened in 2016 in the SoHo neighborhood and just six years later, they’ve expanded to luxe international cities like Miami, Paris and Las Vegas, and now Dallas! They’re known for their take on the traditional New York deli, in a much more glamorous setting. And the owners are Major Food Group of the coming-soon-to-Dallas Carbone, a legendary Italian restaurant also from NYC!

Cuisine: A modern New York style eatery

The 101: Sitting in the former Royal Blue Grocery in Highland Park Village, the space has been given an upgrade. The coffee area remains similar, with a walk up counter and booth side seating, but the bar is now a dark wood and marble, and pink upholstery. The space where the grocery piece used to be is now a wide open room of dining booths and tables. A mirrored wall, art deco chandeliers and glass light bulbs give the space a 20’s brasserie feel, and the patio has new (and HUGE) striped blue and white umbrellas for a shaded and picturesque patio moment.

About: Fiatto is the creation of a local restauranteur and chef, both of whom have worked at many popular city spots like Tango Room, The Cowboys Club, Oak and Flora Street Cafe. The aim was to create a Southern Italian inspired eatery with a bit of retro, and an emphasis of dog friendly patio.

SFUZZI

SFUZZI

Neighborhood: Henderson

Opened: March 4, 2022

About: Sfuzzi first opened in 1987 on McKinney Avenue in the heart of Uptown. Robert Columbo, the original owner, wanted to introduce an elevated Italian concept to Dallas. Now, This & That Hospitality (aka the team behind Whippersnapper, Tiny Victories, Ferris Wheelers, etc) has brought this iconic Dallas staple back in the former Capitol Pub space!

Cuisine: Italian

The 101: To pay tribute to the original Sfuzzi, the chef-driven menu incorporates some classic dishes and new, exciting options that are sure to make Dallas fall in love all over again! The shared plates set the tone, so be sure to try Mama’s House Recipe Meatballs or the Asiago and Artichoke Dip. If you’re in the mood, be sure to order one of their signature cocktails, like the original frozen Sfuzzi or the Espress Yourself, which is their spin on an espresso martini!

HATTIE B'S

HATTIE B'S

Neighborhood: Deep Ellum

Opened: Early March 2022

About: Hattie B’s Hot Chicken opened its first location in Nashville, aka the birthplace of hot chicken. Co-founders and father-son duo, Nick Bishop Sr. and Jr., founded Hattie B’s in 2012 after years in the restaurant industry, naming it after their family matriarch and beloved grandmother! Fast forward 10 years and they are now working on opening their 10th location! The Dallas location was set to open in 2021 but kept getting pushed back, now the bird has landed!

Cuisine: Fried Chicken

The 101: Their menu covers a wide span of southern favorites like 1/2 bird plates, bone-in pieces, tenders, sandwiches and more! Each bird gets a cayenne bath and then is spiced according to their scale that ranges from Southern (no spice) to Shut the Cluck Up (serious heat) served on a slice of white bread and pickles to help cut the heat! They created a Dallas-only fried pickles plate topped with signature Hattie B’s spices, which sells out quickly!
