Welcome to AM Intel in the Coronavirus Era, a roundup of the latest news about restaurants in the city. Follow Eater on Facebook and Twitter for the latest information on how COVID-19 is affecting the city’s dining scene.
The Revolver Taco Lounge returns to Fort Worth
Revolver Taco Lounge, the popular gourmet taqueria in Deep Ellum, will return to its roots as part of an expansion that also includes a second location in Deep Ellum. Founded in 2011 in Fort Worth, the restaurant will return to Cowtown with a brand new location on Sundance Square, slated to open in June, according to the Dallas Observer.
Rojas originally left Fort Worth in 2017 to settle in Deep Ellum. Since the pandemic began, Rojas has been running La Resistencia, a tasting menu restaurant within a restaurant outside of Revolver’s Deep Ellum location. He is about to sign a second lease in Deep Ellum, which will be Revolver’s new home, while the current spot will be completely transformed into La Resistencia. No word yet on when these changes will be finalized.
The New York deli Sadelle is on the way to Highland Park
The Dallas bagel game gets a little more interesting. Sadelle’s, a modern deli behind Carbone, will open in Highland Park Village later this summer. The deli, which was founded in Soho in 2015, is known for dishes like cream cheese, latkes and of course some of the best bagels in New York City. Stephen Summers, executive director of Highland Park Village, told CultureMap he wanted to make sure there was still a takeaway breakfast destination for the mall after the departure of Royal Blue Grocery, which will close on June 27th.
Sadelle’s sibling restaurant, Carbone Italian restaurant, is slated to open in Dallas’s Design District but has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Stay tuned for a timeline for both openings.
