Three downtown Dallas restaurants are expected to reopen by mid- or late 2022 after being closed for two years because of the pandemic.
Wild Salsa, Dallas Chop House and Dallas Fish Market will come back in their original locations on Main St. Nafees Alam, CEO of parent company DRG Concepts, tells The Dallas Morning News that his restaurants have been hibernating and are not dead.
“We are going to open everything back up,” Alam said. “We haven’t thrown in any towels. If we haven’t this far, I don’t think we will.”
Wild Salsa, an eatery serving authentic Mexican cuisine and creative hand-crafted cocktails, is expected to reopen first by summer 2022. The restaurant’s from scratch menu offers such eats as Taqueria style tacos and wood grilled fajitas. Wild Salsa has two other locations in Fairview and Fort Worth, both of which have been closed since 2020, as well. According to Alam, the Fairview location will open around May 2022, followed by the Dallas location.
Dallas Chop House, a premier steakhouse that dry ages its cuts in-house with Himalayan Sea Salt, will be updated and remodeled before tentatively reopening in July 2022.
The third restaurant, Dallas Fish Market, will reopen last.
Wild Salsa is located at 1800 Main St, Dallas Chop House is at 1717 Main St, and Dallas Fish Market is at 1501 Main St. Chop House Burger, a fourth restaurant from DRG Concepts, shares an address with Dallas Fish Market and has remained open throughout the pandemic.
