Over the last few weeks some new restaurants popped up in Addison over by Sherlocks Pub. Addison has been a long time party spot for the singles crowd in north Dallas. Restaurants cycle through, coming and going, and a select few are able to stay long term. So when it comes to new restaurants, Addison is constantly booming new places to nom. There were five to be exact, and they are now open for business to consumers.
RA Sushi is a huge hit in Plano at the Shops of Legacy for the upscale singles crowd, so it would make sense to put one in the new buildings in Addison. A common place for date night, their sushi and funky music nights draw a dancing and very youthful crowd. Plus, their happy hour specials keep the wallet from bankrupting.
Across the street from RA is the new Hopdoddy Burger Bar. These folks hand craft their burgers using hormone and antibiotic free black angus beef. They bake their own buns from scratch daily, which can be seen when you walk in the door. A fresh modern twist to the traditional burger joint, this place also has daily specials such as their Thanksgiving on a Bun, which consists of a All Natural Turkey Patty, Sage Pesto, Jalapeno Cornbread Stuffing, House Made Ginger Cranberry Chutney, Gouda Cheese and Bacon Brussels Sprouts Salad. It’s a great place to stop in and grab a bite on the way to the club. Prices are under $10 for a burger.
Next door to RA is the Yard House. This place looks really cool, with a modern edgy clean steel look and keg rooms that can be seen by patrons. This place also has a very large patio that contains plenty of seating with heater umbrellas. Notated as a craft beer place, they appear to keep up on food trends as well. They sell yards and half yards of beer, and have some pretty cool happy hour specials from 3-6 Monday thru Friday. There are plenty of TV’s so this is a hit place for game watching with the boys. The food here has not yet been sampled, either, but the menu showcases a variety of noms including vegetarian and gluten free options. That will be in a future article.
Last, but not least, the place that has that great patio next door to Sherlock’s Pub, La Comida. This new place just opened up last week, and when speaking with one of the owners, Mario Urtecho, this place was inspired by his family. He grew up on the Yucatan portion of Mexico with his grandfather and father owning and running multiple restaurants. La Comida is a Mexican styled restauraunt with Tex-Mex flair. Walking in, it has a good retro beach vibe, with windows that open to let in the summer breeze like you see in areas like Cancun. Not presenting itself as a stuffy place, the restaurant owners designed the restaurant with the beach in mind. The margaritas are hand made from scratch using a lime juice, and not a premix. Mixing Texas favorites into the menu, the Mexican Restaurant offers 9 different tacos, three different enchilada platters which can be mixed and matched, and of course three different styles of fajitas. Mexican classics like the Queso Fundido (white cheese queso) can also be purchased. La Comida offers five different quesos to choose from, and eight different salsas. Prices for dinner meals are from $10 to 18, and the handmade margaritas run about $8 each when it isn’t happy hour.
