One of the greatest restaurants in Dallas back in the 1980’s and 1990’s will be making a comeback in 2022 according to a CultureMap Dallas article from December 6. In it they say,
“An Italian restaurant concept that’s iconic to Dallas is getting a revival: Sfuzzi, which was one of Dallas’ first modern Italian restaurants when it opened back in the late ’80s, is opening on Henderson Avenue.
According to a release, it’ll open at 2401 Henderson Ave., which is the former Capitol Pub space, and will open in early 2022.
Sfuzzi is being resurrected by Brandon Hays and Phil Schanbaum, partners in This & That Hospitality (High Fives, Tiny Victories, Whippersnappers, Ferris Wheelers, Alice). Hays was involved with the concept previously and recounts in a statement how Sfuzzi was once a buzzy destination.
“The plan is to draw as much inspiration as possible from the original menus – both food and bar,” he says.”
This revival will be the third time ever since its debut back in the 1980’s where it expanded into 20 several locations until the owners unfortunately closed down according to a Dallas Morning News article from December 6 which says,
“It was resurrected from 2009 to 2013 and again became a “gangbusters” place to hang out on McKinney Avenue.
Sfuzzi reopened yet again in Dallas, in 2015 — but only for a hot minute, from February to August.”
The new location will boast not only their famous pizza, pasta and signature cocktails but also a huge space and is committed to the design and development of the outdoor space. There will be 80 seats inside and 120 outside. Additionally, there will be additional features for the interior such as a massive Woodstone wood burning, a wraparound patio and a U-shaped bar.
