If you've heard of Hook Line & Sinker, the Uptown Dallas restaurant that's been serving fried catfish for more than 20 years, you're going to recognize a new restaurant from the same company, Hookline.
Hookline is Hook Line & Sinker's dressier cousin; it's a sit-down restaurant rather than order-at-the-counter.
Fittingly, Hookline has opened in a development called The Boardwalk at Granite Park in Plano. The restaurant row has big patios overlooking a man-made pond that feels slightly coastal for landlocked Plano.
Chef Aaron Nelson's menu will include shrimp and grits; scallops and country ham; and a raw bar with oysters.
His cuisine is "Gulf Coast low country." You've surely heard of "lowcountry" cuisine, especially if you're a Food Network watcher. (And we all are, aren't we?) It refers to homey seafood dishes with roots in South Carolina; Nelson's spin takes us to Texas' Gulf.
Hookline opened in late September 2017. The development is located in the southeast crux of the Dallas North Tollway and State Highway 121, at 5805 Granite Parkway, Plano.
