Kitchen LTO Opens with Chef Norman Grimm

I’ve been anxious for Kitchen LTO, a literal “limited-time-only” restaurant space, to open in the developing Trinity Groves area of Dallas, and today is the day!

Find a Fix at Mudsmith

Boutique, local coffee houses are as hot right now as what’s in their cups and Dallas is no exception to this trend.
