Mister 01
Mister 01 Pizza

Neighborhood: Oak Lawn

Opened: October 17th

About: This Miami based pizza chain has 13 locations internationally, and has opened its first Dallas location in Turtle Creek Village. They are known for having authentic Italian flavors, with Chef Renato Viola learning to cook in Italy, and sources several of his ingredients from there.

Cuisine: Italian

The 101: The star shaped pizzas and luxe burrata bar were our favorites! Burrata has been trending recently, so if you’re on the hunt for the creamy cheese, look no further. The dishes are also made with great ingredients – like no sugar added to the pizza sauce, however we still managed to get our sugar fix in with the Nutella calzone (a must!)



Isla & Co
Isla and Co

Neighborhood: Bishop Arts

Opened: October 21st

About: Isla and Co launched earlier this year in Brooklyn, and has rapidly expanded to four locations, one of them being Dallas! The idea is to bring the approachable culture of Australian dining with an elevated environment, to the United States. Isla & Co prides itself on a fresh, seasonal and high-quality menu with options like avocado toast, a healthy quinoa salad and spicy vodka shrimp rigatoni. They serve coffee in the mornings and cocktails in the afternoon and evenings.

Cuisine: Australian, Healthy

The 101: This will be one of our new go-to work spots and hangouts! It really does have a New York meets Australia chill feel and blends perfectly with the rest of the friendly Bishop Arts neighborhood. For an Australian experience, start your day with the Brekkie Roll with a side of Vegemite toast; for lunch try the Fish and Chips and for dinner, start with the pork sausage rolls and finish with an Aussie Vanilla Slice. We also love their Wednesday happy hour from 3-6pm!
