Dallas restaurant Amuse to become Tex-Mex place called Sala in South Side
Chef Doug Brown ditches American bistro theme.
DALLAS Developer Jack Matthews and local chef and restaurateur Doug Brown announce today the addition of Sala, a traditional Tex-Mex restaurant, to the South Side community. Sala will be located in the space currently housing Doug Brown's American bistro Amuse and will open the first week of September. Sala, meaning lounge or living room in Spanish, will offer affordable and delicious house-made Tex-Mex with Chef Brown's twist.
"We are always excited about working with Doug Brown and his team. They bring lots of enthusiasm, great food, and creativity," says Jack Matthews President of Matthews Southwest and developer of South Side on Lamar. "With the police headquarters, concerts at the Palladium and Gilley's, and being days away from the opening of The Beat Condominiums, Sala will be a refreshing addition to the South Side neighborhood offering residents, area businesses and visitors an affordable and approachable style of food."
For the traditional Tex-Mex lover, Sala has items like the "holy trinity" appetizer offering pico de gallo, guacamole, and classic queso for $8.25, or chose from favorites like fajitas, enchiladas, and for the indecisive, a tasty combo. Those looking to try some twist to their Tex-Mex can chose from a number of unique items like the Mexican Club, a wrap made with chipotle tortillas, pico de gallo, corn and black bean salad, sour cream, bacon, guacamole and your choice of chicken and beef. Don't forget to order a drink to wash down that great food like a Mexican Mimosa, made with sparkling wine, orange juice and Cuervo Gold. If you prefer your tequila straight, choose from Sala's array of tequilas available as shots, neat, on the rocks, or a margarita floater.
With casual interior décor and a great patio view of downtown, Doug Brown's new Sala in South Side is a great place to relax and enjoy lunch and dinner or meet up for happy hour.
Sala, owned by local chef and restaurateur Doug Brown, is located at 1326 S. Lamar and is open Monday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., with brunch on Saturdays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and happy hour Monday-Thursday 3 to 7 p.m. Sala offers traditional Tex-Mex favorites and a number of dishes with Doug Brown's signature twist along with a full bar and outdoor patio.
