Chef Tiffany Derry’s new Italian restaurant debuts in Farmers Branch this May.

Celebrity chef and owner of the acclaimed Roots Southern Table, Tiffany Derry, is finally opening her new Italian concept in Farmers Branch on Wednesday, May 1. Along with T2D Concepts partner Tom Foley, Derry will debut Radici Wood-Fired Grill with limited service. Drawing inspiration from Derry’s experiences in Italian restaurants, as well as Foley’s heritage, the new spot’s menu will change seasonally and feature fresh pasta made daily.

Guests can expect antipasto like seafood salad and supplì al telefono, primo courses including lasagna and coniglio alla gricia, steak, eggplant involtini, and classic desserts such as tiramisu, affogato, and pistachio olive oil cake. Cocktail options include Derry’s favorite Aperol spritz, Negronis, and housemade limoncello. There will also be an extensive wine list with natural picks.

Foxtrot had a great selection of wine.

Foxtrot suddenly shutters all of its stores in Dallas and across the country.

In 2019, the Chicago-based specialty grocery store debuted its first Dallas store in Uptown. It then expanded to Hillcrest, Knox Street, and even Greenville Avenue this past September. Just this morning, however, the company sent out an email to its customers stating that Foxtrot and Dom’s Kitchen & Market (which merged six months ago) will close all doors in Chicago, Austin, Dallas, and D.C. starting today.

The statement reads: “We explored many avenues to continue the business but found no viable option despite good faith and exhaustive efforts.”
