A popular Italian marketplace, with an original location on Sylvan Avenue, is expanding to downtown Dallas later this summer. CiboDivino comes from chef, restaurant vet and Italian, Daniele Puelo and his wife Christina. Their second location, CiboDivino Centro, will open in Bryan Tower.
Since 2015, the couple has been offering a true, Italian dining experience with fresh, house-made breads, pastries and Italian food. Although the new location will be sticking to this main goal, it’ll also be adding some new features specific to the location. These include scratch-made and customizable salads, paninis and chef crafted dishes like pastas and pizzas. Centro will be the only place that you can find Roman-style pizzas with scissor-cut slices.
Selected by Daniele, more than 120 retail wines will be available, as well as Italian wines served by the glass. A full-service cafe and coffee bar serving Lavazza coffee and Italian coffees will be a plus. And a grab and go snacks will be readily available.
The Bryan Tower space will boast an outdoor patio, green space and a private event space. It’ll add to what Dallas needs more of downtown, a place to buy fresh foods like sustainably sourced proteins, fish, seafood and vegetables. CiboDivino is partnering with Red Bird Farms, Olmos Famous Organics, Sun E Farms and 44 Farms for the project. COO and partner Ryan Olmos plays a big part in these partnerships.
“Centro is an exciting, new version of the CiboDivino brand,” Daniele says. “I wanted to be in the center of the action — the trains, the trolley, the buzz of people weaving through the buildings downtown. Italians start their day with coffee, break for a healthy lunch and end with an aperitivo with friends. I hope a bit of my culture will become a part of the local routine.”
CiboDivino Centro will be open Mondays through Fridays for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
