An Arizona-based restaurant plans to open a new location at Inwood Village in Dallas next year — its first in Texas.
According to a Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation filing, construction at 5560 W. Lovers Lane is set to begin in February and has a completion date of August.
The scope of work includes the “remodel to existing restaurant space, including new kitchen equipment, lighting, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing work as required to support new equipment,” per the filing. The address listed in the filing correlates with that of Bread Winners Cafe & Bakery.
Doughbird’s other locations are in Phoenix, Tucson, and Nashville. Fox Restaurant Concepts also operates Blanco, Culinary Dropout, and Flower Child brands across Texas, including seven in North Texas. Near Doughbird’s planned location in Dallas is a Flower Child restaurant also along west Lovers Lane.
Aside from pizza and rotisserie chicken, the Doughbird menu features prime rib, salmon, salads, and desserts. It also offers a number of cocktails — from the “Spicy Blackberry Margarita” to the “Indy School Mule” — red and white wine, champagne, canned, bottled, and tap beer.
Fox Restaurant Concept was founded by Sam Fox in 1998, creating an “ever-evolving and growing lineup of unique concepts, which now spans across the United States,” according to the company’s website. Those include Fly Bye, another pizza and chicken restaurant, Olive & Ivy, The Green House, The Arrogant Butcher, Zinburger, and Wildflower. In 2008, Fox and Dr. Andrew Weil opened True Food Kitchen, and Fox Restaurant Concepts now employs 4,000 workers.
The Inwood Village project has a construction cost of $1.7 million, covering more than 6,100 square feet. The design firm listed on the filing is Field Paoli Architects of San Antonio.
