Making Dallas Even Better

Design District: Central Standard Closes. Primo’s to Open in the Space

centralstandardAn bald, eagle-eyed SideDish reader reports there is a sign on the door of Central Standard in the Design District. The note says Central Standard is gone and a second location of Primo’s Bar and Grill will open in the space.

Central Standard was yet another ambitious project of Restaurants America, a group out of Chicago that invaded Dallas in late 2011 and leased spaces for five restaurants: Mockingbird Taproom, Townhouse Kitchen & Bar, Boca Chica, Townhouse Kitchen & Bar, and Park Tavern. They have all closed.

    The foray into Big D of Chicago-based Restaurants America is not quite the full disaster, Nancy. Park Tavern on Park Lane near Greenville Ave. is still open. Also, Primebar on Cedar Springs (which you didn’t mention) is also still open. They’re not dead….yet!

    The misinformation from Side Dish these days is amazing.
