Both Christophers, Zielke and Jeffers, of Bolsa Mercado confirm the shop opening up in Arlington has nothing to do with Bolsa Mercado in Bishop Arts. So, there you have it. Call anyway and ask them if it is true: 214-367-9367.
A quick email exchange with chef Tracy Miller of Local confirms she is opening Restaurant Rosemont at 2912 Elm Street (@Malcom X). The kitchen will serve breakfast, lunch, and brunch. The fare is “simple American.” She hopes to be open in mid-May. “I’m working on the menu now,” Miller says. “There will be nothing over the top – very simple. And hopefully refreshing in every way!” She also says there is a huge parking lot adjacent to building that is for Rosemont’s guests only. No parking meters! Outdoor seating! Beer, wine, and Champagne!
Hours, etc. below.
UPDATE: Sorry, the name is Rosemont not Restaurant Rosemont. Continue reading "Chef Tracy Miller of Local to Open Rosemont in Dallas"
