Spicy chicken tikka and shredded pork tacos soon will be a short car ride away.

Preston Hollow residents don’t have to trek to East Dallas to indulge in Velvet Taco anymore. The restaurant is opening a location at Preston Forest Shopping Center, where Fossee’s Shoes spent 31 years.

Construction on the 3,400-square-foot eatery starts in March and is slated for completion in July. It will include a patio, pick-up menu and a backdoor chicken menu, with rotisserie chicken, elotes and tortillas.
