WELCOME TO THE WHEELHOUSE One a culinary no man’s land, the district has transformed into one of Dallas’s dining destinations, with a slew of new restaurants from some of the most prolific names in the industry Tim Headington furthered his reputation as one of the city’s most prolific developers with the opening of a 10,000-square-foot complex designed by the world-renowned Seattle architecture firm Olson Kundig. Housed inside the complex is a trio of new restaurants: gastropub Wheelhouse, Italian eatery Sassetta, and grab-and-go concept Go Go. The three restaurants line the perimeter of an outdoor pavilion featuring an 18-foot-tall commissioned sculpture Moving Figure by New York artist Daniel Arsham. Wheelhouse is a modern American gastropub serving approachable food with well-sourced ingredients in a relaxed, social setting. Sassetta features a seasonal menu with creative reinterpretations of modern and regional Italian cuisine. With a contemporary take on romanticized European design and a subtle nod to Harry’s Bar in Venice, Sassetta will function as an all-day café for those looking to linger. Upcoming is grab-and-go concept Go Go, offering fresh roasted artisanal coffee from Counter Culture Coffee accompanied by a selection of daily house-baked goods, sandwiches, pizzas and entrees. This year also brought the opening of award-winning Dallas chef Nick Badovinus’s steakhouse, Town Hearth. Serving as a culinary memoir, Town Hearth is the culmination of Badovinus’s life, blending his Washington roots with his Dallas restaurant career. Oft-described as a “love letter to Dallas,” the restaurant is delightfully over-the-top, featuring a menu that covers everything from seafood, to steak, to tater tots, and décor that includes 64 chandeliers, two vintage Ducati motorcycles, a 1961 MG, and a fish tank containing a real submarine.
