Having proven their joint concept a big success in South Austin, partners Tyson Cole and Aaron Franklin are readying to take their take on the Asian smokehouse beyond Austin’s city limits.
The two James Beard Award-winning chefs will open a location of Loro at 1812 N. Haskell St. in Dallas next summer.
“Collaborating with Aaron on Loro has been such a great experience, and the reception to the food, drinks and atmosphere has been stellar,” Cole said in a release. “We hope Dallas will dig the complex flavor combination of Southeast Asian food with the richness of smoked meat just as much as they do in Austin,” continued Cole.
The building may echo a familiar look, as Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, which designed the Austin location, will also design the Dallas sibling.
