True Food Kitchen will open early next year in the Plaza at Preston Center, anchoring the center’s newest building.
The restaurant — the seventh of the healthy-eating chain in the United States — will be based in the new five-story building that is wrapping construction in the coming months. Businesses are expected to open in the first quarter of 2013.
“The debut of True Food Kitchen will bring a new, fresh concept to Dallas diners from one of the most respected boutique restaurant companies in the U.S.,” said Mike Geisler, partner at Venture Commercial and the Plaza’s retail broker, in an email. “We welcome True Food Kitchen as the first new retail tenant in the new building, and we look forward to announcing more great tenants in the coming weeks.”
The new University Park Public Library will open above the restaurant around the same time.
This isn’t the first time True Food Kitchen has attempted a move into the Dallas market. Last year the company announced they were opening a location in NorthPark Center; no word on what killed that deal.
