Dish is known for serving upscale comfort food at in the glitzy iLume complex in Oak Lawn, and now it’s expanding to our neighborhood.

The restaurant will open a location at northwest corner of Hillcrest and Northwest Highway in the spot formerly occupied by Soleo Mexican Kitchen, which closed last spring after a brief run. Tim McEneny, Dish CEO, says the goal is to open before Christmas in time for holiday dining. If not, he expects the restaurant to be open in January at the latest.

He says the Preston Hollow menu will be similar to that of Oak Lawn which features signature cocktails as well as brunch and dinner items like barbecue-braised short ribs, the Dish burger, jalapeno mac n cheese and more. See the menu here.

McEneny says the restaurant already has a loyal clientele from Preston Hollow and Park Cities, so it made sense to open in the neighborhood, especially right across the street from Temple Emanu-El. Over the years, Dish has hosted private events and contributed to fundraisers.
