Chinese restaurant to open near ‘mini Klyde Warren Park’ in Far North Dallas

Restaurateur Howard Wang plans to open a Chinese restaurant in spring 2022 at Hillcrest Village, a growing foodie zone in Far North Dallas.

The restaurant will look out over a $4.3 million green space and a playground on Arapaho Road that’s been called a “mini Klyde Warren Park.” A lackluster shopping center has been replaced with family-friendly restaurants like Haystack Burgers, Andy’s Frozen Custard and Haute Sweets Patisserie. Don Pepe’s Rancho Mexican Grill is one of the newest restaurants nearby. Its opening in late 2021 was welcome news for neighbors, many who had eaten at owner Jose Jaimes’ Tex-Mex restaurants in the area since 1985.

By April 2022, a Cane Rosso pizza joint is expected to open at Hillcrest Village as well.

In 2021, the area behind the tree will become a 1.5-acre green space with a half-dozen restaurants with patios.

Howard Wang’s is a family-owned business named for its patriarch, who is Chinese but was born in Korea. The first Howard Wang’s opened in Preston Hollow in

What restaurants are open Christmas? McDonald’s, Starbucks, IHOP open but Chick-fil-A, Chipotle closed

If you’re looking to grab a bite to eat or a cup of coffee on Christmas, be prepared to find limited options Saturday.

Major national restaurant chains like Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, Chili’s, Taco Bell and Chipotle are closed for the holiday. With Christmas falling on a Saturday, it means Chick-fil-A will be closed two days in a row since its restaurants are traditionally closed Sundays.

But many Starbucks, McDonald’s and Dunkin’ locations will be open on Christmas, along with IHOP, Denny’s and Waffle House.

You also might be able to order pizza from Pizza Hut, Domino’s or Papa John’s, but not all locations will be open or delivering.
