Lark on the Park

Restaurateurs Shannon Wynne, Keith Schlabs and Larry Richardson have feathered a tasty (and well-placed) nest across from Klyde Warren Park christened Lark on the Park. Former Los Angeles-based chefs Dennis Kelley and Melody Bishop are putting their mark on local ingredients to create slimming but satisfying shared plates and dinner entrees, including house-smoked duck breast and moo krob (otherwise known as Thai pork). Lunch service is planned for the foreseeable future — expect sandwich and salad specialties. Interior flights of fancy include bright pops of color and sleek finishes, but the real charm lies in its chalkboard wall panels, rotating local artists’ freehand illustrations every three months. And, as Wynne says, “Being located directly across from what is arguably the most successful arts destination in North Texas, or hell, maybe the whole South, can’t hurt.” 2015 Woodall Rogers Freeway, 214.855.5275;
