Boxwood Tap & Grill in Uptown Dallas is open
Take a look at the menu below.
Located in the cozy neighborhood of State and Allen in Uptown Dallas, Boxwood Tap & Grill opens at 4 p.m. Monday, July 22, 2013. It takes the place of Thomas Avenue Beverage Company (TABC), which closed more than six months ago.
The neighborhood bar will have hand-crafted cocktails concepted in part by Jason Kosmas (who has since moved to Austin), and food from Chef Jason Wade, formerly of Whiskey Cake in Plano and Café 43 at the Bush Presidential Center.
The menu (below) includes some interesting drinks like a Nada Colada, made with roasted pineapple and cinnamon-infused Cana Brava Rum, with lime juice and coconut puree; and pitchers of Texas Julep, made with Maker's Mark, mint syrup, peach bitters, and Texas honey. Beer offerings are a healthy list of local brews on tap, plus plenty of craft beers by the bottle.
Snacks include inexpensive bites like trail mix for $3 and popcorn with black pepper and parmesan cheese for $2. The sandwiches are priced at $10 to $11 -- things like a Scandalous Po'Boy with fish fried in Peticolas beer batter and a Fried Green Tomato BLT. Brunch is coming soon.

We wrote in June that:
Boxwood is part-owned by Tommy DeAlano, who also is involved with fine dining restaurant Oak in the Design District, plus two spots on Henderson Avenue in Dallas -- nightclub Candleroom and cocktail den The Dram. Does Boxwood resemble any of those swanky spots? Not exactly, said partner DJ Donohoe. "This is casual, good food, tons of sandwiches, good bar bites, and a good beer list," he said.
