An artsy new destination is heading to Trinity Groves this summer. Art Park, an all-day outdoor hangout, will open in the restaurant-centric area by this June. The cocktail and burger spot is set to take over the former parking lot space on Singleton Boulevard, creating a new destination in the neighborhood for al fresco dining.
Serving cocktails, beer, and frozen drinks from a shipping-container-turned bar a bar, the Art Park earns its title with vibrant graffiti murals painted by local West Dallas street artists. On the dining front, Trinity Groves corporate chef Jay Valley is concocting a menu of burgers, hot dogs, chicken wings, and something called Spaghetti O fritters, according to a release.
If you’re looking to explore the area, a brand new Tijuana street taco spot from Jesus Carmona (Tacos Mariachi, Chimichurri) called Milagro will be opening at the start of summer as well, marking a major comeback. In 2020, both Tacos Mariachi locations shuttered due to the effects of the pandemic. It was one of the few Dallas-bred brands that had been featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.” But alas, Carmona found a miracle (which is what Milagro means in Spanish) and got the opportunity to open a new spot two blocks down from Trinity Groves.
Milagro’s menu will naturally be taco-focused, including options like mahi birria tacos and pork belly al pipil tacos, but you can also expect a few other dishes like the Campeona Burger (with avocado mousse, shrimp, chicharron, asado cheese, and jalapeño glaze). Sinaloa-style ceviche and veggie bowls will serve as lighter options.
As for the cocktails, Chimichurri bartender James Slater is designing the menu to include tequila and mezcal-based drinks, made with fresh-squeezed juices. There will also be cucumber lemonade (a Taco Mariachi classic) and 32-ounce Caguamas. Milagro will be open on Tuesday through Sunday.
