Roughly 2 months into 2022, restaurants are are already flocking the Knox Street in Dallas however the one getting the site of Highland Park Soda Fountain isn’t ready to share the details just yet according to a Dallas Morning News article from January 13 which reports,
“The restaurant group behind The Charles in the Dallas Design District and Sister on Lower Greenville plans to open three new restaurants in 2022, including one at a historic Dallas address.
The site of the former Highland Park Soda Fountain on Knox Street in Dallas will become a new restaurant that preserves the facade of the former building. Customers probably won’t order a grilled cheese and a milkshake while sitting on diner stools — though what, exactly, they’ll do instead isn’t clear. Chas Martin, Benji Homsey, Corbin See and Ross See, who operate a restaurant group named Duro Hospitality, haven’t said what kind of food they’ll sell or what the name will be.
An Italian-esque menu would make sense in the former Highland Park Soda Fountain space, given Duro Hospitality’s runaway success with The Charles and Sister, at a time when Italian food has never been better in Dallas. But time will tell.
Martin says his restaurants create “organic, memorable experiences that transport guests out of the day-to-day grind and into a place that is inviting and comfortable.”
Another restaurant will be opening in Dallas but this time, it will have a bar dedicated only to serving oysters and other seafood according to a Dallas Morning News article from January 24. They say,
A restaurant specializing in raw oysters and other seafood is expected to open on Knox Street in Dallas, in the new Weir’s building.
Owner Greg Katz calls Greenpoint Seafood and Oyster Bar a “modern, classic” place expected to open in fall or winter 2022.
The menu for Greenpoint is far from finished. Katz hopes it’s “small, charming and comfortable,” a place that will attract lunch and dinner crowds seven days a week. The idea is to be a midday meetup spot for office workers moving into the new buildings on Knox Street, then serve dinner and drinks to shoppers and residents in Uptown, Park Cities and the M Streets.
Currently, Knox Street is the home of several hot and famous restaurants as it contains Pizzana, Up on Knox, La Duni and Toulouse and Taverna and more.
