B r u n c h e r s , re j o i c e . Haywire – Uptown, w h i c h o p e n e d i n Legacy West in 2017, has debuted in the former Water Grill space. It was listed among the 100 Best Brunch Restaurants in America by OpenTable for good reason. Their riff on the oft-needed hair-of-the- dog Sunday-morning cocktail is the Cucumber Bloody Mary, which employs Effen cucumber vodka to quell the lingering effects of an epic Saturday night. (Wink-wink, Park House — we know you've enjoyed capacity crowds of late for boogying to the wee hours.) … Finding yourself downtown after shopping at Forty Five Ten or a board meeting at the AT&T Performing Arts Center once meant leaving the neighborhood to eat. Quelle surprise, the new restaurant Good Graces has quietly opened in the Marriott Dallas Uptown hotel. Like many dining spots housed in a hotel, Good Graces offers it all: breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. Catching up with a friend over cocktails? Cozy up in the French-brasserie-inspired bar, which is slightly removed from the main dining area with a view of the action in the kitchen. The menu is informed by chef Juan Pablo Silva's Peruvian heritage … Want to hit a spot with more of an urban jungle feel with throngs of downtown denizens? Stroll over to The Exchange at the AT&T Discovery District. It's the last to rollout in the new district nestled in the center of the city. The Exchange is the first food hall downtown and encompasses more than 26,000 square feet and 16 eateries, including Revolver Taco, La Duni, Baboushi, Ounce, and Ichi Ni San. There are grab-and- go options, as well as sophisticated dine-in experiences, plus an outdoor space that residents in adjacent luxury apartment buildings will likely use for meetups. Patrons can also grab a drink at Double Tap, which offers curated cocktails served on draft. Look for entertainment from local musicians. E v e r- b u s t l i n g L o w e r Greenville welcomes two new Japanese restaurants. First off, Shoyo has settled into the Daddy Jack's space and is helmed by former Nobu chefs Shin Kondo and Jimmy Park. Diners have two options: traditional or new omakase experiences, the latter being a more unique take on Japanese cuisine … Just down the street, you'll find Manpuku Japanese Yakiniku Grill. Founded close to seven decades ago, this Tokyo-based barbecue chain chose Dallas for its first Texas outpost. Get ready for a participatory evening, as diners cook protein and vegetable options tableside over small grills. Feeling peckish after perusing the offerings at the Louis Vuitton in Plano's Legacy West? Check out Ebb & Flow. After enjoying great success at their Deep Ellum location, brothers Dallas Hale and Eric Bradford opened in The Shops at Legacy in the former Coal Vines space, with a verdant garden- like patio and interiors designed by Laura Bradford. Tip: Accompany your Garden Margarita with an order of Cubano egg rolls. While in Plano, check out Vinotopia, an ever-handy combination of wine bar and retail shop brought to you by hospitality group FB Society (Whiskey Cake, Sixty Vines). It's vino heaven where you can sample before purchasing the wide assortment beautifully displayed bottles. Simply secure a tasting card and let your exploring begin. Plano has also welcomed Oishii. This sushi lover's paradise is where you'll find the much-touted Texas roll, made with octopus, avocado, smelt egg, and jalapeño.
