From Cali-cool chains and locally grown concepts to an Australian café out of Brooklyn, these are the new Dallas restaurants we’re most excited about this fall.

Poco Fiasco

2828 N. Harwood Street

Dallas’ Harwood District is getting yet another new restaurant this fall. Poco Fiasco, an intimate pizza and martini spot, will be located on La Rue Purdue (between fellow HD spots Harwood Arms and Elephant East). Expect elevated pies like Quattro Formaggi, The Texan with brisket and barbecue sauce, Grandma’s Margherita, and Bacon and Egg. There will also be starters like calamari, garlic knots, and beef tartare, as well as a few sandwiches and classic Italian dishes.

A build-your-own martini program will be a highlight of the restaurant, offering a variety of vodka, gin, vermouth, and olive options.

Isla & Co.

408 W. Eighth Street

Expected to open in September in Bishop Arts’ former Lucia space, this new Brooklyn-based Australian cafe (founded by Perth natives), will serve coffee and brunch during the day and transition to cocktails and dinner at night. Executive chef Matt Foley, who worked as a sous chef at two Michelin-starred Marea in New York City, crafted the menu for the restaurant.

2633 Gaston Avenue

The Saint, a new Italian steakhouse from hospitality veteran Andy Hooper (Las Vegas-based Hooper Hospitality Concepts), is opening in Two Sisters’ former East Dallas space this fall. The Saint will offer an Italian-inspired menu featuring dry-aged meat and chops, housemade pasta, and vegetable-based dishes. The drink menu will feature new spins on classic cocktails, as well as a wine menu spotlighting Italian wine and California reds.

Brass Ram, Pop Top

2130 Commerce Street

It’s a Nick Badovinus trifecta in the historic, pie-shaped building. Opening right above National Anthem, which opened just last year, Badovinus’ Brass Ram will serve steak, fish, and plenty of red meat. And just above that, Pop Top will serve as a casual—and constantly evolving—rooftop bar.

Badovinus also has another restaurant in the works — Royal Bastard. The lavish, intimate Design District spot will open in the former Kings Cabaret strip club this summer.

 

Pizzana

Pizzana

3219 Knox Street

Set to open this September on Knox Street, Pizzana was co-founded by actor Chris O’Donnell (NCIS) and the co-creator of Sprinkles cupcakes, Candace Nelson. The Dallas outpost will be the pizza chain’s first location outside of California, offering its “interpretation of the Naples staple,” according to the restaurant website.

Pizza options include the Carnivoro (lots of meats), a Cacio E Pepe creation, Pignatiello (with braised short rib), and so many more creative pies. There are also a couple of vegan options, as well as antipastis, salads, and desserts.
