Cafe des Artistes Opens October 24th

Did you catch the Dallas Eater post on our new restaurant, Cafe des Artistes?  Cafe des Artistes is set to open at One Arts Plaza on October 24th.  With The Greek opening on October 19th, it's certainly an exciting month at One Arts Plaza! 

What can you expect at Cafe des Artistes?  Well, as a Lombardi restaurant - it's sure to give you the full French brasserie experience.  We are crossing our fingers there are chocolate croissants (or, something much more yummy).

Tei-An on D Side Dish:
It was wonderful to see Tei-An noted in "Four Fall Favories: The Pumpkin Roundup" for their Soy braised Kabocha pumpkin. Carol Shih wrote on DSide Dish, "Tei-An holds a special place in my heart. Everything that comes out of Teiichi’s kitchen should be preserved in a special food museum so future generations can get a taste of this Japanese food art that’s happening in One Arts Plaza. Kabocha pumpkins, which I spotted at Tian Tian Supermarket in Richardson this weekend, are Japanese pumpkins that are a pain in the assassin to cut open. It requires a special knife and a very strong arm. But once you figure out a way to open this ugly, green, squat-looking pumpkin, the juicy insides are worth all that work.But once you figure out a way to open this ugly, green, squat-looking pumpkin, the juicy insides are worth all that work. Teiichi serves a slice of seaweed over his braised kakobcha pumpkin slices ($4.00), which sit in a bed of savory soy broth." 

The Greek on CultureMap Dallas:  
We're excited to see The Greek noted on CultureMap Dallas as one of the "New on the Dallas restaurant scene: A crazy spate of fall openings."  Teresa Gubbins wrote,"New concept from folks behind Ziziki's takes over the space previously occupied by The Commissary."  The Greek is on track to open October 19th.

The Greek - Coming Soon to One Arts Plaza

The Greek Pita, Meze, Wine will open its doors at One Arts Plaza on October 15th!  The new restaurant concept from Mary and Costa Arabatzis, owner of Ziziki's and Ziziki's Taverna, will feature fresh, flavorful dishes, all with the same delicious ingredients that have been popular at Ziziki's for nearly 20 years. Richard Silva will join the team as Director of Culinary Operations. 

“As the menu evolved and expanded from a focus on solely mezes (small plates) to pitas, mezes and big platters, we found the name Meze was too limiting and confused the public who did notimmediately recognize that meze was Greek,” said Mary Arabatzis, co-owner.  “Thus, THE GREEK – Pita, Meze, Wine is a perfect description.  We cannot wait to open our doors and let everyone enjoy the fruits of our labor!”

Jason Kosmas, a renowned mixologist and a Greek American, will collaborate on the bar cocktail menu utilizing unique ingredients and paired to perfection with the new menu items.

Look for new menu items including the Greek Dip (a roasted leg of lamb, horseradish smear and lamb jus on a crispy baguette), the Crispy Pork Pita (marinated pork and Greek spices smothered with Greek slaw) and the Grilled Steak and Fried Egg Pita (thinlysliced grilled steak and balsamic onions topped with an over-easy egg).

HOURS: The Greek will be open Sunday – Thursday from 11am-10pm, Friday and Saturday, 11am-12 midnight.  For reservations, please call (214) 999-1311.

Valet parking is complimentary at lunch and $5 at dinner with validation.
