A hidden bar called Akai has opened in the Dallas Arts District

Alamo Club. Lower Greenville's newest restaurant and bar is Alamo Club, a dark and handsome place. Why name it Alamo Club? Because these guys love Texas. Fair enough. Alamo Club opened Feb. 20, 2019, at 1919 Greenville Ave., Dallas. Read more about it here.

Banh Mi Station. Fast-casual Vietnamese shop Banh Mi Station has opened at Sylvan Thirty in West Dallas.

Bitter End. In place of a Deep Ellum restaurant called Idle Rye, new owners have opened a restaurant and pub with an oyster bar. The murals on the walls by Jerod "Dtox" Davies make for a colorful, fun backdrop. Bitter End opened in early 2019 at 2826 Elm St., Dallas.

Bubba's Cooks Country. The Southern restaurant that opened in University Park in the '80s has spawned a second location, in Frisco. It's the same fried chicken, mashed potatoes and rolls, with chicken and waffles added to the menu. Bubba's Cooks Country opened Feb. 5, 2019, at 4584 Preston Road, Frisco. Read more about it here.

Deep Ellum Funkytown Fermatorium. One of Dallas' biggest breweries has set down roots in Fort Worth, this time going big on food — though beer will certainly flow, too. The menu has pizzas and shareable plates, our Tiney Ricciardi reports. Deep Ellum Funkytown Fermatorium opened March 1 at 611 University Drive, Fort Worth. Read more about it here.

El Bolero Cocina Mexicana. Go for the tequila cocktails, stay for the decor. We're loving the cactus wallpaper at the new Fort Worth restaurant. El Bolero opened Feb. 15, 2019, at 2933 Crockett St., Fort Worth.

The Henry. On opening weekend at The Henry, every table in the massive, two-story restaurant was filled, mostly with twentysomethings having drinks or dates. This American restaurant in Uptown Dallas has the potential to be very popular. While dinner seems like the obvious choice, it's also open for breakfast and lunch, and has a coffee shop in the corner. The Henry opened Feb. 13, 2019, at 2301 Akard St., Dallas. Read more about it here.

Here's a new one: Restaurant launches exclusively inside Walmart

Hickory Bird. It's going to sound strange, and it is, but a Southern comfort restaurant is launching inside Walmarts, where a McDonald's or a Subway might have been. The first one in the country opened in Bedford, and more are on the way. Hickory Bird opened in late 2018 at 4101 Highway 121, Bedford. Read more about it here.

Sushi de Handroll. Restaurants specializing in handrolls, or temaki in Japanese, are moving into Dallas. At Sushi de Handroll, customers will find handrolls made of fish and rice, wrapped in crispy seaweed, and served like tacos. Sushi de Handroll opened in late February 2019 at 8041 Walnut Hill Lane, Dallas.

Walk-On's Bistreaux and Bar. You could tell from the name of the restaurant: Walk-On's Bistreaux is from Louisiana. It's a sports bar with a Cajun menu, and it's part-owned by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. Expect more Walk-On's to pop up in North Texas. Walk-On's opened Jan. 21, 2019, at 3165 Regent Blvd., Las Colinas. Read more about it here.

With others in Addison, Frisco, Fort Worth and Las Colinas

Dibs on Victory. The two-story Victory Park bar Dibs is one of several nightlife spots expected to open in Victory Park in 2019 — in part to "create a culture" in that neighborhood, says co-owner Brandon Hays. Expected to open in March at 2401 Victory Lane, Dallas. Read more about it here.

The most exciting restaurants opening in Dallas-Fort Worth in 2019

Heim Barbecue. Heim Barbecue No. 2 — hey, that rhymes — is expanding its menu at the coming-soon barbecue restaurant. In addition to its famous bacon burnt ends (and other smoked-meat offerings, duh), the new Heim will sell burgers, chicken wings and salads. Expected to open in March at 5333 White Settlement Road, Fort Worth.

Hillside Tavern. The team behind Rapscallion and Boulevardier are opening a neighborhood restaurant and bar. There'll be cocktails and wine, TVs and darts. "All we're missing is our very own Norm," says Alexa Conomos, the former WFAA anchor whose husband, Bradley Anderson, is opening Hillside Tavern with his brother Brooks Anderson and chef Nathan Tate. Expected to open in early April at 6465 E. Mockingbird Lane, Dallas.

Homewood. We're calling it the most anticipated restaurant opening in Dallas this year. Chef Matt McCallister, formerly of FT33, is opening a new neighborhood restaurant near Highland Park — one he says is still refined but more approachable. "Warm atmosphere, genuine food" is the slogan. Expected to open in late March at 4002 Oak Lawn Ave., Dallas. Read more about it here.

il Bracco is expected to open in 2019 at the Plaza at Preston Center in University Park, near Corner Bakery and Hillstone.

Il Bracco. A new Italian restaurant is opening at the Plaza at Preston Center, that buzzy corner in University Park. The CEO and COO have experience at Hillstone — which Dallasites tend to love. Expected to open this spring at 8416 Preston Center Plaza, University Park. Read more about it here.

Jinya Ramen Bar. Restaurateur Tomo Takahashi moved to the United States in 2010, and Jinya has already expanded to a dozen states since then. This one's landing in Victory Park, a neighborhood on the rise. Expected to open March 18 at 625 High Market Road, Dallas.

K's House. Trinity Groves in Dallas has been known for offering diners a variety of cuisines, but K's House will be the development's first Korean restaurant. K's House comes from Dallas restaurateur Sammantha Kang. Expected to open in late March at 320 Singleton Blvd., Dallas.

New 'kind cafe' coffee shop in Dallas is hiring unemployed former foster kids

La La Land Kind Cafe. It's a coffee shop with an all-organic menu that employs former foster kids looking for jobs. Its owner Francois Reihani is passionate about what this Lower Greenville cafe can do for the community: "It's become very personal for me. I go to church with them. I talk to almost all of them every day," he says of the employees. Expected to open in late March at 5626 Bell Ave., Dallas. Read more about it here.

Lupe Tortilla(s). Tex-Mex restaurant Lupe Tortilla has plans to move into Addison and Las Colinas soon — an exciting thing for fans of its three-pepper cheese steak and other spicy dishes. Houston transplants seem to be especially interested in Lupe Tortilla's Dallas-area debut. Expected to open this spring at 4535 Belt Line Road, Addison, and 3131 Regent Blvd., Las Colinas. Read more about it here.

Marufuku. San Francisco ramen shop Marufuku is moving into a corner of Frisco dominated by Asian-owned businesses. It'll be neighbors to 85C Bakery, 99 Ranch Market and Daiso Japan. Expected to open in late April at 9292 Warren Parkway, Frisco. Read more about it here.

Off the Cuff. This new bar and restaurant in Deep Ellum aims to have "an upbeat environment where everyone feels comfortable and welcome," according to a press release. It'll have a patio, TVs and large-format drinks — for anyone up for sharing a 64-ounce Moscow mule. Expected to open in March at 2901 Elm St., Dallas.

Revelers Hall. The Bishop Arts District "kind of shuts down by 10 p.m.," says restaurant owner Amy Wallace Cowan. So she and some cohorts in the neighborhood are opening Revelers Hall, giving restaurantgoers a place to listen to music and drink a cocktail after dark in Oak Cliff. It'll have a kitchen, too, with small plates. Expected to open March 14 at 412 N. Bishop Ave., Dallas.
