Michael Hiller has an update on chef Matthew “Sipango” Antonovich’s new venture, Tie Restaurant and Social Club. Short story: Matt is going to open a 12,000-square-foot space in a “perfect location” that “can support a 5 million dollar restaurant with local support that can be busy 7 nights a week.” The overall concept is a bit confusing. Part of the complex will be “the first Thai Steakhouse in America.” According to Antonovich’s Twitter page, “TIE Restaurant will have live entertainment, Indian Dinner Seating, Vietnamese and Hong Kong Street Food Menu under 15 dollars.” The rambling post on escapehatchdallas.com goes on to say, “God bless the recession I have found great deals on equipment, designers and food service experts hungry to put Dallas back on the map of best restaurants in America.”
Two questions. Are there Thai Steakhouses in Thailand? Was Dallas ever on the map of best restaurants in America? Just curious.
