Food News (3/20/13)

After months of delay, Sylvan | Thirty is finally breaking ground at 10:30 this morning. The Mayor and a variety of other local business people are supposed to make an appearance. Personally, I’m more looking forward to seeing Teiichi Sakurai, since he’s opening a fish market there. I’m still wondering what he’s going to name it.

The DMN reported that the George W. Bush Presidential Center’s restaurant is going to be called Cafe 43. “Dallas-based Culinaire will run the complex’s food operations,” writes Tom Benning. And former first lady Laura Bush will be very involved with the design of the restaurant, as well as selecting the chef. The space will be open for lunch every day.

Trader Joe’s is (probably) moving into Inwood Village. Cantina Laredo closes to make room. Teresa Gubbins on CultureMap has the scoopage, and it turns out that our little birdy from last September was correct after all. There’s just one problem: parking. But TJ’s is good at navigating impossible parking situations. So, there’s hope.
