The culinary excitement brewing in Lowest Greenville seems to be moving north. A new restaurant called Wayward Sons is expected to open a few blocks away, right across from the Granada Theater, on Dec. 7.

Bread and butter: There's a whole section of it on Wayward Sons' menu.

The restaurant comes from This & That Concepts, the company that's quickly infiltrating hot neighborhoods in Dallas: They operate So & So's and Standard Pour in Uptown, High Fives and coming-soon Whippersnapper on Henderson Avenue. 

Wayward Sons is the company's first Greenville Avenue business. 

Expect "Texas cuisine," says a press release, with a special section of the menu devoted to house-made breads and butters. Entrees include wild mushroom tamales, chicken and dumplings, and cornmeal-dusted catfish. See the full menu below.

Chef Graham Dodds, formerly top toque at Bolsa and Hibiscus, will lead the kitchen at Wayward Sons. Dodd's work at Hibiscus earned him an entry in The Dallas Morning News' list of the best chefs in 2014. He was among Dallas' most talked about chefs such as Stephan Pyles (Stampede 66 and Stephan Pyles) and Matt McCallister (FT33).

The new restaurant opens in the former Woodfire Kirby's location. Wayward Sons will initially be open for dinner, with weekend brunch coming later.

Beer drinkers with a sense of humor will appreciate the "as seen on TV" beers list: Coors, Miller Lite and Michelob Ultra.

Expected to open Dec. 7 at 3525 Greenville Ave., Dallas. waywarddallas.com.
