Casa Rubia brings Spanish tapas to Trinity Groves — and it’s open now
The restaurant will serve only Spanish wine, beer and sherry.
WEST DALLAS Food offerings in the Trinity Groves neighborhood of West Dallas are becoming more diverse by the day. Casa Rubia, a Spanish tapas restaurant, joins Souk and LUCK as the newest in a wave of recent restaurant openings at the base of the Margaret Hunt Hill bridge in West Dallas. Casa Rubia begins dinner service Monday, November 18.
For his second entrepreneurial venture, Driftwood owner Jonn Baudoin wanted to fill a void in Dallas’ culinary scene with authentic Spanish fare, he told us back in July. Casa Rubia’s menu of small plates sticks closely to traditional Spanish offerings like jamon serrano and jamon iberico. More creative dishes focus heavily on seasonal ingredients, such as seafood. One glance at the menu shows a variety of proteins including rabbit leg, mussels, trout, octopus and quail.
The restaurant also features a daily paella — made to order, from scratch — that will feed four or more people. View the full menu below.
Driftwood’s executive chef Omar Flores will be heading the Casa Rubia kitchen in addition to his managerial duties at Driftwood. Baudoin previously told Pegasus News chefs will use modern cooking techniques to bolster the authentic fare.
“Trinity Groves is a great opportunity for Jonn and I to showcase our spin on classic Catalonia tapas,” Flores said in a press release.
As far as libations, the restaurant will serve strictly Spanish wine and beer, as well as a large selection of sherry. Wines cost $28-120 per bottle, with some available by the glass ($7-10). There's word of a Spanish cocktail menu, too, though we have yet to see the list.
Casa Rubia will be open for dinner 5-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 5-11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The restaurant is closed Sundays. Casa Rubia is located at 3011 Gulden Lane, Suite 116. It's next door to Souk.
