DFW.com contributor Anna Caplan, who also does some real estate reporting, tipped us that Fort Worth-based Kin Kin Urban Thai is destined for a new location in Richardson. This will make four Kin Kins for Chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin, aka Chef Eddy T., with two Dallas ones planned in addition to the original, which opened in March in Fort Worth.
While we were Googling around for info on that, we found a report from DFW.com contributor Teresa Gubbins, who also writes for Dallas CultureMap, that the chef will also open a new location of his Bite City Grill in Richardson. Both will be in CityLine, a mixed-use development near the intersection of President George Bush Turnpike and Central Expressway in Richardson.
The original Bite City Grill opened in 2014 in Montgomery Plaza in Fort Worth, in a location that has seen several restaurants come and go during the past few years. “The menu is described as modern American cuisine, and spans the globe from a Middle Eastern appetizer to an Italian semifreddo dessert,” Gubbins said in her DFW.com review. “It’s an exciting fusion of flavors that feels worldly, yet represents the personality of the chef. No one other than Chef Eddy could assemble this exact combination of dishes and influences, and in that respect, it’s a treasure.”
Read her whole review here. And look for Caplan’s review of Kin Kin Urban Thai next week on DFW.com.
The Richardson Kin Kin is scheduled to open summer 2015, Gubbins reports, and the new Bite City will open in early 2016.
