The newest bar concept from Exxir Hospitality (Tejas, Paradiso) in Bishop Arts is a Moroccan-themed lounge with a 70s-inspired karaoke speakeasy (or “singeasy” rather) named Casanova. Set to open on October 21, the new bar will feature cocktails like frozen piña coladas and a food menu crafted by chef Nick Hurry. Bites will feature items like Balinese popcorn chicken, cardamom lamb skewers, and more. The restaurant’s aesthetic is inspired by Moorish design and Balinese island influences. An “outdoor patio will feature landscaping inspired by Tulum’s beachfront eateries,” says a release.

Recently opened in Oak Lawn, this new Spanish-influenced restaurant comes from chef Modesto “Mo” Rodriguez. Most recently a sous chef at Julian Barsotti concepts Nonna and Carbone’s, this is Rodriguez’s first restaurant of his own. Situated in an old house on Fairmount Street, the new spot features an edited menu of starters, salads, and entrees with Venezuelan inspiration. For instance, the summer menu includes carne asada, pork belly, and scallops with corn rib. There’s also a Venezuelan flan for dessert.

The restaurant is currently open for lunch Thursday and Friday from 11 am to 1:30 pm and Wednesday through Saturday from 5:30 pm to 10 pm for dinner.

2816 Elm Street

Taking over the former HIDE bar space in Deep Ellum, this Midwestern-inspired dive bar is now open for drinks and Chicago-style hot dogs. Named after two Chicago neighborhoods, the new spot serves inventive cocktails including the Green River (a mixture of gin, sherry, and dry vermouth). Another intriguing cocktail is The Bloody Hauer with whiskey, Zing Zang Bloody Mary mix, and green Tobasco. The food menu includes Midwestern favorites like cheese curds, as well as toasted ravioli, a hot beef sandwich, lemon pepper chicken tenders, and the “Jucy” Lucy — a cheeseburger with cheese cooked inside of the meat.
