An international pita restaurant is debuting its first Texas location in Deep Ellum.

Israeli pita restaurant Miznon is opening its first location in the Lone Star State in Dallas’ Deep Ellum this year. As first reported by CultureMap, the spot will take over the former Postino Wine Cafe space. Opened by celebrity chef and MasterChef Israel judge Eyal Shani in Tel Aviv in 2011, Miznon is a fast-casual restaurant that serves pita sandwiches filled with proteins like chicken liver, lamb, bolognese, vegetable-based dishes including their “World Famous Baby Cauliflower,” and more.

As a coworker’s friend who visited their Tel Aviv location said, “This is a huge get for Dallas.”

In other chocolate news, an iconic Bishop Arts chocolate shop is closing after 15 years.

Today, favorite Dallas chocolate shop CocoAndre Chocolatier announced on Facebook that they will be closing their Bishop Arts storefront after 15 years. The owners note that the change isn’t happening immediately. “We have some exciting plans for the future that will allow us to continue sharing our passion for crafting artisan chocolates. Our commitment will remain the same, to delivering the same high-quality and creative treats,” the post says.

The Mexican-American family-owned store opened in 2009. It’s run by mother and daughter Andrea Pedraza and Cindy Pedraza, and recently expanded to amazing horchata drinks as well. We’re sad to see them leave the Bishop Arts neighborhood, as so many favorites seem to be leaving, but we’re excited to see where they end up.
