A new restaurant is coming in the busy area of University Park and its concept is as intriguing as its name according to a Dallas Morning News article which reports,
“It’s looking like 2023 will be a hallmark year for Snider Plaza, the shopping center in University Park that’s been around since 1927.
Beyond the handful of new restaurants coming soon in Snider Plaza from UP resident and restaurateur Hunter Pond, another Dallas operator, Jon Alexis, just announced he will open an American eatery named Ramble Room in the neighborhood.
Restaurateur Alexis — like Pond and fellow Snider Plaza restaurateur Doug Pickering (who owns newish restaurant Douglas) — has strong ties to the neighborhood. Alexis’ first job was at Kuby’s Sausage House and European Market, and he and his wife grew up nearby.
“I hope Ramble Room serves the neighborhood as long as Kuby’s,” Alexis says in a prepared statement.”
Ramble Room will feature a grand decoration that will produce an astonishing and calm ambiance for the guests and customers but the full menu is yet to be revealed according to an Eater Dallas article. They say,
“Details on the food are thin, other than a promise of what Alexis calls “approachable American cuisine” and the promise of a family-friendly space. A representitive for the restaurant shared some rough menu items, including a waygu ruben, Italian sausage rigitoni, and filet mignon of tuna. “We wanted to do a style of restaurant that my friends as well as my parents would enjoy,” Alexis said, with the promise that it would be the kind of place diners can go a couple of times a week.
The decor, however, is described in detail. Patrons will dine under high ceilings, tall windows offering a view of the world, a patio fireplace by the front door, and personal lamps at every booth. The space is 4,500 square feet and holds 75 in the dining room and 50 more on the patio. Alexis intends the 25-seat u-shaped bar to invite patrons to stay awhile. And a second floor will be available to reserve for large and private parties.
Alexis and his staff are looking at the spring of 2023 for their grand opening.
